Ron Mueck

Today I stumbled across a story about the work of London-based sculptor, Ron Mueck.

Ron Mueck's In Bed

Interestingly, Mueck started his career as a Muppeteer, and worked on projects like Fraggle Rock and the Labyrinth before becoming a fine artist. Earlier this year, Coolhunting.com‘s Tim Yu described an exhibition of Mueck’s work in Brooklyn NY:

Known for his empathetic renderings, the sculptures are startlingly lifelike—so much so that it was easier to look at the sculptures that had their eyes closed, because only then could you feel uninhibited in your observation, sympathy and admiration. Mueck’s attention to detail is excruciating. Take notice of the subtle translucent skin revealing veins on the lower back of the 15 foot (4.5m) long piece called “A Girl”.
