Artist of the Month; Ron Mueck

Ron Mueck is one of those artists whose popularity is both self explanatory and well deserved. In an age of innovation, Mueck is ahead of most of his contemporaries and the way his work is received is evidence of just how far he is. Personally I have only seen two of his sculptures 'in the flesh', I saw 'Dead Dad' in the UK when I was a student, and one of the 'Boy' sculptures towers above the entrance hall at Aros art musuem here in Aarhus. Mueck is my artist of the month (after some contemplation) because I recently saw the images of his 'pregnant woman' (see image above) and I just love it.
