  1. 1. Ron Mueck... Who is he and what does he do?? Watch these videos http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwIkJiauV3U http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1973308/hyperrealism_art_ron_mueck/
  2. 2. Ron Mueck (1958-) The Basics <ul><li>London based photo realist/hyperrealism artist, born in Melbourne in 1958. </li></ul><ul><li>Laboured on the sets of children’s television shows before moving into the field of special effects, where he worked on the 1986 David Bowie film, ‘The Labyrinth’. </li></ul><ul><li>Relocated to London he started a company making models to be photographed for advertising. </li></ul><ul><li>After a while, Mueck concluded that “photography pretty much destroys the physical “presence” of the original object” (Artmoulds Sculpture Studio, 2001) and he turned to fine art and sculpture. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Mueck's sculptures faithfully reproduce the minute detail of the human body, but play with scale to produce disconcertingly jarring visual images.
  4. 4. Notice the amzing details and realness to Mueck’s work? Mueck wanted his sculptures to be made of something harder and more precise than Latex (the common material used). Fibreglass resin was the answer and he has used it since the early 1990’s.
  5. 5. Want to see more Mueck??
  6. 12. Dead Dad was a hyper-realistic sculpture of Mueck’s dead father, naked, lying on the floor, so that you could easily trip over him, especially because he was only three feet long.
