The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Spooning Couple

Spooning Couple. 2005 - 2007 Sculpture by Ron Mueck.

Ron Mueck exhibition at Mexico City’s ‘Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso‘ which offered very different insights into the mind of a unique contemporary artist.
Mueck is an Australian sculptor specialising in hyperrealism. The exhibition in Mexico City was ‘Hiperrealismo de Alto Impacto’ (High Impact Hyperrealism).
Mueck takes human and animalistic forms in all their fragility, strength and emotions and either amplifies or diminishes the size to provoke an intensified reaction.
