If someone has seen the statues of Australian sculptor Ron Mueck live, they will agree that the first feeling you experience when you see it is shock and trembling, these giant figures created by the author look so impressive and super-realistic.
Ron Mueck was born in 1958 in Melbourne, Australia, but lives and works in London, UK. Ron grew up in a family where his parents were engaged in the production of dolls. For more than 15 years, the future sculptor worked on television, made dolls for the Muppets Show and the cult fairy tale Labyrinth (1986). Mueck also dabbled in photography, but eventually came to the conclusion that photography eroded the physical presence of the original subject a little, and switched to fine arts and sculpture in the early 1990s.
Ron Mueck (Ron Mueck) works in the style of hyperrealism, the goal of which is to depict the world not only authentically, but super-similar and super-real. Objects and scenes in hyper-realistic painting art are detailed to create the illusion of reality. By creating his sculptures, the author makes them anatomically correct. They have wrinkles in the corners of the eyes, and fat folds, and genitals, and varicose veins. She uses latex, silicone and fiberglass as material for her naturalistic sculptures.
Today Ron Mueck can rightfully be called the leading contemporary sculptor. The whole world started talking about him after the Sensation exhibition in 1997, where the author presented then a touching sculpture called "Dead Pope". The small, naked body of a dead man, similar to the sculptor's father, plunged visitors into a state of shock.
The author's works are truly intriguing. His sculptures look as if they are alive, ranging from the smallest statues to giant nude figures. All human figures actually look naturalistic, but none of them correspond to standard human sizes, for example, take at least tiny old gossip women or a woman in bed, whose dimensions are really impressive, as well as the unforgettable huge "Sitting Boy" figure 4, 5 m. Ron Mueck himself admits that he never creates sculptures of human growth because it is not interesting for the simple reason that you meet normal people every day.
Mueck's Pregnant Woman is the most grandiose of his works. The 2.5 meter high sculpture is impressive, depicting an exhausted woman. This sculpture evokes many thoughts, ranging from the miracle of motherhood to the responsibility entrusted to a woman. For about three months, Ron Mueck worked with a pregnant model. The statue itself is made of fiberglass and its face is made of silicone.
An eerie impression is made by the eight-meter sculpture of a newborn girl, one head of which corresponds to human height.
