Ron Mueck

March 12, 2010

I first came across Ron Muecks work back in the nineties, when I traveled to London and visited the Saatchi Gallery. I loved this tiny little naked miserable looking men, lying on the floor, with the title Dead Dad.

His hyper-realistic people have since fascinated me, especially because of the proportional aspect. I often wondered how Mueck works, which is why I find these pictures of him in his London studio, preparing for an exhibition in Paris, especially interesting.

    His work is fascinating! It was interesting to find out he began his career as a puppet maker for films, working on the ‘Labyrinth’ and some of the Jim Henson films too! He’s also the son in law of Paula Rego – you can see the influence from her work in the exaggerated eyes of his figures
