Have you ever stood in front of one of Duane Hanson's sculptures? From my childhood on I stood hundred times in front of the the Supermarket Lady. Now my own daughter is fascinated by her.

Hanson's work is interesting at first, and technically admirable, but he basically did the same thing for years -- variations on a theme. For hyperrealist sculpture, I find Ron Mueck's work more provocative (for a variety of reasons). Here's one example...





Some of his other (more interesting) work is a bit graphic to post here, so I'll let you discover that on your own if interested.

John De Andrea is another artist of the same caliber. One of our museum obtained the works from Duane Hanson and John De Andrea 40 years ago and present them til today. What fascinates me, is that these sculptures seem to be timeless.

Here a work from John De Andrea we have here (Possibly NSFW):
http://www.ludwigforum.de/img/lufo/l_sammlungen/usa/andrea.jpg

The motives of Duane, De Andrea or Mueck are maybe different but their ability to create real looking sculptures is unique.

We don't post pr0n around here because women should be respected at all times, but since this is art could you post that lady from different angles and in different positions?
I'll just sit here refreshing this page until you do, thank you.

PS I'm not serious, seriously not.

It looks like pron at first but if you see the second sculpture depicting the next scene of what happened right after you'll find she ends up kneeing him straight in the b***. The painful, aahing and oohing on the man's face have been captured quite well.

If you only could see him from a 1cm distance, you would be shocked of how real the couple looks.

Look, I know it is art and all but please refrain from posting half nekid images of people using the UBB IMG tag. And please label links appropriately so when the CEO walks in we don't have to explain to them "...but it's ART!"

If I positioned myself that close to the display I would become part of the piece and passers by would gawk in admiration and wonder things like 'they had the concept of interracial threesomes back then'?

I'll use a link in future but only for the images (like the one you changed) that could lead to a wrong assessment.

or this one



The face appears to be Mueck's own, lying on its side as if asleep. Currently on display at the British Museum.
