Ron Mueck has an exhibition in the Royal Scottish Academy this summer. I am still not decided one way or the other how I feel about his work – but there is no doubting the immediate, strong reaction to them. They do seem to propose that rarest of things (and of deep interest to Human Greed) the one way dialogue. It is as though in order to “say” something “loudly” the scale of phenomena has to be radically altered.
Use the link to material from the Scottish Academy itself, but The Washington Post has a better slideshow – and the UK Daily Telegraph newspaper has a photo of his startling giant baby – but somewhat mitigates the impact with a slideshow of the artist at work in his studio.
