Hyper Realistic Giant Human Sculptures
London based artist Ron Mueck, known for his extremely realistic human sculptures, took two years to create his latest installment. Before his opening in Paris, the private artist gave photographer Gautier Deblonde access to his workshop. The interview is available here.
Paige Bradley created one of the most striking sculptures I’ve seen in recent times. Her masterpiece, entitled Expansion, is a beautiful woman seeking inner piece but fractured and bleeding with light. “From the moment we are born, the world tends to have a container already built for us to fit inside: a social security number, a gender, a race, a profession,” says Bradley. “I ponder if we are more defined by the container we are in than what we are inside. Would we recognize ourselves if we could expand beyond our bodies?”
