Random musings, stuff I like, a lovely place to store all the copious amounts of media I ingest daily plus aventures in city life, food, travel and art.

Ron Mueck is a sculptor of hyper-realistic, large-scale pieces that are absolutely amazing.  I had the pleasure of seeing his solo exhibit in 2006 at The Brooklyn Museum. The pieces were truly cool and rendered with such detail, and I was happy I had the chance to "experience" them in-person so I could take in their scale. Nothing like a 30ft baby or giant woman in bed... dreamlike in a way that makes you feel like you're crashing a fairytale starring giants.
