Today Camille and I ventured to the city to see the Ron Mueck exhibition at the NGV. All of his work is so lifelike, yet nothing is life sized. Highly recommended that you see this, because just looking at a 2D image loses the impact.
Here are some shitty phone pics that I took.
Ron Mueck also used to make models and puppets. He was the voice of, and constructed my favourite childhood character.
