Jo Maree's Brisbane trip

I recently went on a trip to Queensland to see my family and on the way I stopped in Brisbane to see the Ron Mueck exhibition. It was amazing and inspirational. Ron Mueck's sculptures are hyper realistic with super human changes to scale.

"Two women" (2005) I especially like this photo as the person in the background of it looks ghostly. The detail in their skin was amazing.

"Mask II" (2002) is a mask based on Mueck's face.
His sculptures were overwhelming. I was expecting them to start moving they were so realistic. "Wild Man" looked like he was about to fall off his seat due to fear of the onlookers.

So that was an amazing experience - probably one of the best exhibitions I have been to see for a long time.

After visiting the exhibition I walked over the new Brisbane "Go between" bridge, and then we went over to do some shopping.

While on a break, it has given me some time to play and plan more goodies for the next 'handmade' markets. I'm looking forward to it. Hope to see you there.

All photos were taken at GOMA in Brisbane on 8th July 2010.


  1. Great exhibition. We lived in Brisbane from 1992-1994 and it's a great city - thanks for sharing the photos Jo - Hugs Nat
