Ron Mueck's sculptures are all of the human figure, some smaller than life-size, some larger. They portray us, members of the human race, as we progress from birth towards death: as babies, children, adolescents, adults, and as old people. He shocks us into reassessing ourselves in our existential nakedness with the uncanny realism of his figures. This short book, written by Keith Hartley, examines the psychological impact that Mueck's sculptures have on their viewers and illustrates all the new works that Mueck has made over the last couple of years.
