‘People in all their variations and similarities are pretty fascinating. Occasionally some of these aspects come in to focus… and I think maybe I could capture that. You just start with your subject (and your own baggage) and see where you end up… you try to imagine what it’s like to be in their place.’

Since his moving and poignant work ‘Dead Dad’, 1996 – 1997 was included in the iconic 1997 exhibition, ‘Sensation: Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection,’ Ron Mueck has emerged as a major sculptor. Renowned for his extraordinarily life-like figures, Mueck uses pose, gesture, facial expression, scale and realism to evoke an empathetic, emotional response from the viewer. Through contemporary subjects, Mueck explores timeless themes depicted throughout art history, encouraging the viewer to identify with the human condition.

Works such as ‘Drift’, 2009, a sculpture of a man on a lilo floating on a blue gallery wall, provokes questions of the brevity of life. Like many of Mueck’s works, ‘Drift’ taps into powerful and universal emotional states, enabling viewers to create their own narratives. Other works such as ‘Couple under an Umbrella’, 2013 use an enlarged scale, drawing the viewer in to appreciate Mueck’s attention to detail whilst also allowing them to contemplate the relationship between the two aging protagonists.
