Ron Mueck: Hyper-Realist Sculptor

A succinct summary of my radiology day job: "applied anatomist".

Perhaps because of this, I have a special affinity for art well-depicting the endlessly fascinating human body. The sculpture of Ron Mueck is a notable example of this. The impact of his works comes from not only their breath-taking realism, but also from the creative way he uses scale to give fresh and unexpected views of our particular primate group.
