Ron Mueck: Amazing Sculptures

I’m not much of a Museum person, but I visit the odd one once in a blue moon.

I like art; it’s just not on the top of my to do list.

BUT

by chance, I saw some of Ron Mueck‘s work in Kanazawa, Japan.

He Rocks!!

Unbelievable stuff. Life like? I wouldn’t have been surprised if the pieces got up and started walking around. I’m not easily impressed, but this stuff was freaky real: faces, bodies, even the soles of the feet were amazing.

If you have a chance, take a look at his stuff in the flesh. Photos just don’t do it justice.

This is a link to more info and great photos of Ron Mueck’s work.

  1. i plan to see the exhibition in kanazawa. do you know if they allow picture taking inside the museum?

  2. no pictures allowed 😦

    I got these ones from the web.

    The exhibition only has 8 or 9 pieces, but they are amazing. The museum is pretty cool too. Highlights: Ron Mueck’s stuff, the swimming pool, and wandering around inside at night looking at random public exhibitions for free with no one else around. The grounds are pretty neat too.
