The Hyperrealist Sculptures of Ron Mueck
To view works from Ron Mueck’s current exhibit in Buenos Aires, visit the Fundación Proa location page.
Australian-born sculptor Ron Mueck has lived and worked in the United Kingdom for the past several decades, where he has gained global notoriety for his hyperrealist sculptures fashioned from fiberglass, silicon and resin. By replicating human anatomy in excruciating detail, Mueck dramatizes and explores themes of life and death through sculptures both miniature and massive.
Mueck’s latest works, which debuted in April at the Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain in Paris, France, recently made their way to Fundación Proa in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In March, the show will continue its tour through South America at the Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio de Janeiro.
