The exhibition Ron Mueck includes mixed media works on loan from the artist’s collection, major museums, and private collections. Mueck employs imitation and illusion to explore the ambiguous relationship between reality and artifice, creating figures that express the contradictions between the real world and the imaginary. The figures seem to be alive: every detail – veins, wrinkles, moles, body hair, rashes – is crafted to such perfection that the result is remarkably convincing and deeply troubling. The size of the works – always larger or smaller than human scale – is equally disconcerting.
