Artist's Description

“man in a boat” by ‘ron mueck’ (2002). mixed media – 1/3 scale naked man seated toward the prow of a 4-metre-long rowing boat
above words courtesy of wikipedia
this man is very bizarre looking as he sits near the front of his boat, naked. there is no evidence of any clothing on board either. mysterious. i decided the see how the image would look from the back of the boat given that you’d have the long lines of the wood, the man from behind, and a load of people in absolute wonderment. i actually prefer this one over my photograph of the image itself
update 5th June 2010
i have received confirmation from mr mueck that he is happy for me to publish this image
another piece from the amazing ron mueck exhibition – this man is such an amazing talent and i’ve wanted to see his works for many years now. australian born, london based, this man is quite incredible. finally, he has an exhibition at our local g.o.m.a and shock shock shock, you can take photos provided you don’t use a flash! i think they were relying on the fact that the exhibition would be so popular that no-one would get a picture without someone else in the shot. wrong! if you have never heard of ron mueck, then i’m glad you’ve read this far and now know that he exists. if you know of him, then i hope you have also enjoyed my images of his works. man in a boat
