Ron Mueck (b.1958, Australia) - Couple Under An Umbrella. Mixed média, 300x400x350 cm (2013)
“I never made life-size figures because it never seemed to be interesting. We meet life-size people every day.” says Australian-born, London-based artist Ron Mueck. Mueck works slowly in his small North London studio, making time itself an important element in his creative process. His human figures are meticulously detailed, with surprising changes of scale that place them as far from academic realism as they are from pop art or hyperrealism.
Mueck has had highly acclaimed exhibitions around the world from Japan to Australia, New Zealand and Mexico, but shows of his new work in Europe have not been frequent occurrences. Artist has been invited to present his new sculpture at the Fondation Cartier from 16 April to 29 September 2013. This is his first major exhibition in Europe since the hugely successful Fondation Cartier exhibition of 2005.

This weekend, babies.
Days N’ Daze van fundraiser show at The Doctor’s Office! $5! It’s going to be fucking gorgeous. “LoveHoldLetGo” is coming all the way from Canada to bring us poetry, shadow puppet theater, music, and more. Music by Frank Freeman and (duh) Days N’ Daze! Come support local music and the out of town-ers. ALSO, it’s going to be Whitney’s 23rd birthday, so let’s make it super great.
Charity show at the White Swan! $5! All proceeds will be going to the American Heart and Stroke Association. Molotov Compromise, Always Guilty and more are playing, PLUS 2 Buck Drunks. The amount of excitement I feel about this show is immeasurable.
So to sum it all up, for 10 bucks you can have a weekend full of good music, good people, getting shwasty faced, and supporting good causes and great bands. Let’s do it to it.
I knew it was just a matter of time.
