TweetThis! Hyperealism Art. The most realistic sculptures by Ron Mueck

It's been a while since I started admiring the fine art of artists, today as I was perusing my photo album, I came across a stunning picture and immediately I was engulfed with desire to find more and then share with my blog readers. It's all about Ron Mueck.

Who is he?
Ron Mueck is a sculptor, but a different one. What makes him so remarkably different from others? - his work. His distinguished work of art is undeniably the most real, almost perfect, to the eyes of any person who appreciates art.
Mueck, Ron (1958 - ) is a London-based photo-realist artist. Born in Melbourne, Australia, to parents who were toy makers, he labored on children’s television shows for 15 years before working in special effects for such films as “Labyrinth,” a 1986 fantasy epic starring David Bowie.
Muek then started his own company in London, making models to be photographed for advertisements. He has lots of the dolls he made during his advertising years stored in his home. Although some still have, he feels, “a presence on their own,” many were made just to be photographed from a particular angle—”one strip of a face,” for example, with a lot of loose material lurking an inch outside the camera’s frame.
Eventually Mueck concluded that photography pretty much destroys the physical “presence” of the original object, and so he turned to fine art and sculpture. In the early 1990s, still in his advertising days, Mueck was commissioned to make something highly realistic, and was wondering what material would do the trick. Latex was the usual, but he wanted something harder, more precise. Luckily, he saw a little architectural decor on the wall of a boutique and inquired as to the nice, pink stuff’s nature. Fiberglass resin was the answer, and Mueck has made it his bronze and marble ever since.
In the three years since his participation in Sensation: Works from the Saatchi Collection, Mueck has posted shows at major galleries in New York, Germany, not to mention selection for the London Millenium Dome and now his work is the subject of a solo exhibition at that city’s highest profile contemporary art space, Anthony d’Offay gallery - the Telegraph.
In this slide show you can see part of his master work.

This is a video documentary in which you will be able to see, learn, perhaps understand and respect this remarkable and passionate artwork by Ron Mueck.
