Ron Mueck's latest exhibition features an array of giant lifelike sculptures, as well as several tiny lifelike sculptures. The disproportionate people are extremely eye catching. Each figure is shaped usin fiberglass resine and pretty much gauranteed to invoke a response.

Implications - Though an audience does normally enjoy an abstract piece of art, nothing is as attractive as a reflection of oneself. Today is the age of unabashed vanity, as blogs and social networks allow for personal profiles that put the spotlight on an individual. This is why consumers get a kick out of art that so closely resembles a human being, emulating a sense of familiarity and perspective simultaneously.
