Karen recently visited Australia and stumbled across a fantastic exhibition of Ron Mueck's work at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne.
"Ron Mueck's sculptures are some of the most widely acclaimed, prominent and identifiable works in the international contemporary art arena. Often naked and suspended in states of self-consciousness, introspection or deep contemplation, his figures present both emotional and physical states of exposure." NGV What's On Guide Mar - Apr 10
As a viewer you have the feeling that you are indeed invading some form of personal space, however, Mueck's sculptures represent very poignant moments. Many of which we might all feel some form of connection with. If you are interested in Mueck's work then you can see more in his book Ron Mueck : Catalogue Raissone.
