A new exhibit featuring the stunning sculptures of renowned Australian artist Ron Mueck kicked off this past weekend at Fundación Proa in La Boca and will be taking place until February.
The artist, who uses a variety of materials including resin, fiberglass, acrylic and more, creates hyperrealist sculptures of people in intimate, emotional settings, reflecting upon their interiority.
Mueck began his career as an art director for television and film, having worked on films such as Labyrinth and the series The Storyteller. He later transitioned to fine art with the objective of making realistic sculptures that look perfect from all angles, playing with scales and showing a unique expressiveness.
The exhibit is open from Tuesdays to Sundays from 11am to 7pm. Av. Pedro de Mendoza 1929, La Boca.
