London-based sculptor Ron Mueck, formerly a model maker and puppeteer for children’s television and films, has been creating fine art sculptures since 1996. Using resin, fiberglass, silicone, and many other materials, Mueck constructs hyperrealistic likenesses of human beings, while playing with scale. The detailed sculptures are captivating when viewed up close, as they may be many times larger or smaller than expected. (Atlantic.)
I’m fascinated by Ron Mueck’s artwork — see my Hyperventilating Over Hyperrealism post from 2 years ago.
Ever the best photographs of Ron Mueck at work in his liar of creativity were created by Gautier Deblonde. French by birth and upbringing, Gautier Deblonde works in London as a photographer since 1991.
He photographed the active process for Ron Mueck’s sculpture Boy for the Millennium Dome in London. Published by the Anthony d’Offay Gallery, this series of photographs won a World Press Award in 2001.
