Do you like these sculptures?

http://cubeme.com/blog/2007/10/31/ro...eum/#more-3630

The exhibition Ron Mueck includes about 15 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 smaller or larger than human scale - is equally disconcerting.

Interesting. Thanks posting. I find them fascinating and disconcerting - hell yes. But I can't say I like them. It'd be interesting to check them out though.

No. If they were hotter and naked, maybe.

Re: Do you like these sculptures?

I don't like them but it's me, not the artist. It scares me just looking at them online so I can imagine how petrified I'd be in person. It's just too eerie for me.

I love you, Dean. I love you, Kiera.

Well I wouldn't want them in my house, but they're kinda cool.
