Inspiration or Procrastination – Ron Mueck

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

I love going to galleries as I come out feeling inspired. I think that this makes the hour or so I’ve spent in them worthwhile, even though it could be viewed as another form of procrastination – I should have been working on Arctic Circle ideas when I went to the Ron Mueck exhibition at the NGV St Kilda Road. It was so much better to see the actual sculptures rather than the photos as only in real life can you see how his sense of scale messes with the subject.

This one looks strangely like my friend, Gary from this angle
