Ron Mueck at the GoMA

Brisbane's Gallery of Modern Art has a Ron Mueck exhibition on right now and through till August. It's a series of figures SO life-like it will blow you away. You can walk around them and see the astonishing detail with the hair and freckles and veins and skin imperfections.

This is Wild Man. His uncomfortable expression and body language were especially believable as he was surrounded by amazed onlookers scrutinising him, pointing and taking photos.

Is he the guy that did the huge face and the pregnant woman? Would love to see an exhibition of his.

Yes! If you get the chance, you have to go - it really is stunning. I was surprised by how affected I was. I could feel the hairs rising on my arms and the back of my neck.

I'm amazed at how life-like he looks! Incredible work. I'm actually uncomfortable looking at him!
