Mueck 3

This was, far and away, my absolute favorite sculpture of the Ron Mueck exhibition at the MFAH. It is titled (obviously) “Man in a Boat” and dates from 2002. Mueck is a master of hyperrealism; apart from this, I find especially in this masterpiece a poignant narrative. I envision this man as the protagonist of a Philip Glass opera. 

Alas, with my iPhone, it was difficult to photograph with the indoor museum lighting and achieve anything of decent resolution. I hope, in spite of this, that I captured the essence of what I saw, far beyond the confines of the museum gallery space.

  1. Continuo a chiedermi che cosa sapresti fare con una reflex, caro Daniel. Sicuramente meraviglie. Mi piace sempre di più il tuo sguardo. E questo nonostante questo genere di scultura che non amo molto.

    • I am humbled by your words, my dear friend. These types of sculptures are not as easy to love as our beloved dreamstones, though they impacted me in a way I did not expect. I hope to share more of what my eyes see.
