Bizarre Life-Like Human Sculptures
Australian sculpture Ron Mueck creates amazing life-like human sculptures. Early on in his career, Ron Mueck started out working in children's television shows and then moved on to working in special effects.
Shortly after, he started his own company based in London making photo realistic props. His work was designed to be photographed from just one angle, and eventually he moved on to realistic sculptures, which would be able to be photographed from any angle.
Ron Mueck's sculptures meticulously detail the human form. His sculptures range from very tiny to massive, but they are never life-sized. He does this to play around with the visual senses.
He uses fiberglass and silicone to construct these sculptures. This is done so that human hair can be punched in by a sharp needle, one by one.
I think these sculptures look like they are going to come alive when I least expect it. The attention to detail is extraordinary, making me just want to stop and stare at these images. Has anyone out there ever seen any of these exhibits in person?
