The Art of Ron Mueck

Ron Mueck is an Australian hyperrealist sculptor working in the United Kingdom. Mueck’s early career was as a model maker and puppeteer for children’s television and films.  

Between Reality & Fiction

Ron Mueck’s first exhibition in Japan opened at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa. It featured a collection of works displayed over 6 spaces in the gallery.  


The Naked Man

Often naked and suspended in states of self-consciousness, introspection or deep contemplation, his figures present both emotional and physical states of exposure. As viewers we experience a level of unease that is borne of a voyeuristic awkwardness, as though we have invaded some kind of personal space. However, we also identify with the human condition these poignant moments express. Astounding in their apparent realism and compelling in their ability to invite interaction Ron Mueck’s works have earned him a singular place as the creator of some of the most evocative sculptures of our time.

    • I saw this exhibit in Brooklyn, NY and it was AWESOME!! I was amazed by how REAL the subjects were. I mean the coloring, the hair, the facial expression all were spot on to what we as human being look like! I found myself staring at them to see if they were breathing!. If you ever get to see the exhibit you will be amazed!!!
