Finding art in the ordinary…

“I never made life-size figures because it never seemed to be interesting. We meet life-size people every day,” says Mueck.

Ron Mueck, Australian-born, London-based artist is known for his hyper-realistic sculptures of human beings portraying humans at key stages in the life cycle, from birth through middle age until death. His attention and commitment to detail offers his audience an experience into the most private and intimate moments of human emotion.

Mueck is known for not being big on interviews and talking about his work. The most revealing insights on his work so far were made by photographer Gautier Deblonde, who was exclusively allowed to film a documentary in Mueck’s studio. Even then the artist said very few words in the whole 52-minute film. His art speaks for itself!

I, for one, was mesmerized…not just by his work but at the thought that there’s so much talent out there to be found…to be celebrated. Each day I run into an artist I realize how tiny our presence is in the big scheme of things, and how alike we are in spite of our differences!
