Ron Mueck's "Spooning Couple"

Ron Mueck's art is usually dubbed hyperrealism (Most of his stuff is larger than life-size). These sculptures (err, figurines?) have a life-sized feel to them, though in fact, they are smaller than my arm (see the real hands surrounding them for a size reference). Size aside, they seem miserable and perfect to me - like two ordinary people, oily and frustrated.

  1. Hi,

    I know his work for a couple of years, but only from the internet.
    I wish that some curator would bring his sculptures to Portugal; as far as I'm aware his work was never exhibited here.

    Best regards,
