Ron Mueck is a hyper-realist sculptor who creates jarring reproductions of people with incredible detail. While his sculptures are incredibly lifelike, they are always done off scale, either larger or smaller than the real size, creating a tension between the realism of the sculpture and the surrealism of its size.
This book records Mueck's exhibition at the Fondation Cartier in Paris and covers his work in sculpture over 20 years. Featuring photographs of his work, images taken in his studio, analytical essays that study Mueck's art, and an interview with the artist himself, this book is the perfect way to delve deeper into Mueck's career.
