Unreal... exactly! Incredible sculptures of creepy, grotesque, mottled skin and uncannily gigantic proportional figures are the work of Ron Mueck, an Australian hyper-realist sculptor working in the UK.

Earlier EBC post features more Ron Muek gallery sculptures. His giant baby sculptures always amuse me and never fail to make me smile.

Saw an interesting snippet on TV last night about independent art in Melbourne - must see if I can find a link for you. I thought of you while I was watching the show. :)

Thanks, Julie! I'm clicking my way through it right now. So much cool shite in Australia.

And so much just plain shite as well. :)

We saw the Ron Mueck show here in Ottawa at the National Gallery. Absolutely brilliant stuff! The detail is astounding.

Mitch: It looks amazing online so I can only imagine how outstanding it looks in a gallery.

Jaycee: I'm flattered to have visitors take the time to stop by and comment. Thank you!

ABOUT EBC

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
