bona fide

London based hyper realist sculptor Ron Mueck blows my mind.  He painstakingly creates silicone and mixed media people that are so realistic you might need to take a second look. . . if it weren't for the fact that they are always represented much larger, or smaller, than normal.  I saw some of his work when i was visiting my sister in London years ago. . . His subjects are often disturbing, grotesque or sad/forlorn.
