Showcase Review : Ron Mueck

I checked out the Ron Mueck show at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane last Friday, and fortunately you can take photos of the work – as long as you have your flash off. The following photos are by Wendy Beuster, who managed to get quite a few good shots. I first saw Muek’s work back in 2005 at the Queensland Art Gallery – a giant pregnant woman – it was very impressive, and I have been a fan of his work ever since. The realism is amazing and uncanny, one gets a sense of life emanating from these works and a feeling of intimacy.

Anyway, here is a walk through of the show :
