Hyperrealism by Ron Mueck

Hyperrealism by Ron Mueck
I did a google search for 'big heads' and I stumbled across this interesting scupture of a man's head laying in it's side by Ron Mueck - an Australian born artist based in London. I had never heard of this artist before, but it turns out he is rather well known.

I think I am drawn to detail. I really like sketches that are detailed and realistic and so I appreciate these sculptures for a similar reason - they are extremely realistic.

Some insight into the construction side of these huge sculptures. This one is called 'Untitled (Big Man)'.

This guy is monumentally brilliant.
His work shows real skill and perfect observation.
He puts to shame 99% of modern artists who are incapable of representing anything except their own egos.

Dawn -
Can you tell me where you got the images of the sequence of construction.
I'd love to know more about his methods.
