While thinking about Ron Mueck I was struck by the memory of sacred Spanish sculpture from the 16th century I saw at the Getty Museum in 2009.

The same meticulous attention to detail, scrupulous colour matching and blurring between reality and art.

Muecks' representation of the profane have the same power as these sacred images must have had in dimly lit churches and cathedrals.
