Mask II, Ron Mueck

“Australian-born, London-based Ron Mueck is as enigmatic as his sculptures. From a distended baby, stuck to the wall crucifixion-style and bearing an unnervingly intelligent demeanor far beyond his age, to a smaller-than-life, sick old woman, who curls up in a fetal pose under a blanket, Mueck's works command an uncanny ability to amaze with obsessive surface detail and intense psychic discharge.” From The Progress Big Man A Conversation with Ron Mueck, Sculpture Magazine, July/August 2003. Check out the whole article and interview with Ron Mueck by Sarah Tanguy here.
