Giants in Art

What caught my attention today after I dropped my little girl at pre-school…

A book on “Ron Mueck” by David Hurlston. A friend of mine was surprised that I like his work because he found it unsettling. But how can I not like this. All people at some time in their life on earth must surely feel like his characters. Big, out of place and insecure. This book gives one a view into the artists reasons for making these awkward giants and the techniques he uses. It also gives one a comprehensive look at his work. This book is not yet released but I’ve put it on my wishlist. You can read more about this book on the Yale Books Blog. I like this blogpost by Miles Barolli.
