Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The sculptor Ron Mueck first came to major critical attention during the controversial Sensation exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum of Art in 1997, and since then he has received international recognition. His figurative sculptures, which are usually cast in silicon and acrylic, are celebrated for their incredible lifelike detail, although his manipulation of their scale means that they often evoke reality rather than directly imitating it. This generously illustrated book is the first to discuss the range of Mueck's innovative work to date. Since 1999, Mueck has been Associate Artist at the National Gallery, London, creating work in response to its collection. Published to accompany the first exhibition of these new pieces, this book contains two essays: Colin Wiggins explores in detail the new sculptures' links to the National Gallery's collection, and Susanna Greeves examines Mueck's work in a wider artistic context.

Synopsis:

Since 2000, Ron Mueck has drawn inspiration from the collection at London's National Gallery, to create sculpture for an exhibition that will open there in March 2003. This catalogue of the exhibition gives an overview of the artist's work and previews his responses to the gallery's paintings.
