WELCOME

This will be about my views on what it takes to put a three dimensional world onto a two dimensional surface. With a lot of digressing.
Don't forget to leave a comment, or a question if you have one, below the post. Thanks.

IN MY DREAMS

Sculptor Ron Mueck -preparing for an exhibition

The finished piece-with real woman in the chair

SEATED MAN Duane Hanson
I was enthralled with the realist life size tromp'loeil sculptures of Duane Hanson when I first saw them at a Soho gallery in the seventies. Later, at a solo exhibition at the Whitney, the pieces became onlookers, guards, janitors; and were that much more effective when people mingled with them, did double takes, and watched other gallery goers react.

Duane Hanson with his sculpture
Hansons' sculpture was cast from life, and made of polyester resin, fiberglass, polychrome paint, real hair, clothes etc.

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST
The plaster cast sculpture of George Segal - with my brother-in-law

  1. We saw Ron Mueck's exhibit in Ft. Worth two summers ago, and it was incredible. We had to go back again before we left town. Thanks for sharing this!
