Ron Mueck in Paris

ron mueck super realist sculpture

The Ron Mueck exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris, France has been extended until October 27. I’m still yet to see any of the hyper-realist sculptor’s work and would love to use this exhibition as an excuse to go and have a coffee and people-watch in Paris, but the bank thinks my mortgage is more important! Damn my shackles.

There’s also a video showing of the London based artist working which is really interesting. Also, something new I just learned (I don’t know much about the sculptor) is that Paula Rego is Ron Mueck’s mother in law. Learn something new everyday ;-)

About Dion

Australian artist and observer of things.. all kinds of things. I like a wide variety of art, from the weird and wonderful to the bold and beautiful.. and everything in between.

    I think that’s completely unreasonable of your bank. As it happens, I’m in Paris. I’ll go for you.
