These wonderful Bull sculptures can be seen on Madras Street at the moment – they will be part of an exhibition at NG Gallery on Madras Street by artist Michael Parekowhai.
I’ll definitely be checking out the exhibition next week – I’ve really missed having somewhere to go and view art.
This afternoon I went to the Ron Mueck exhibition at the art gallery. It is quite simply stunning and you must go and see these life like sculptures.
Man on lilo – he’s actually attached to the wall, but the other half thought it would be an interesting shot taken like this, and yes, he was right.
I think the old ladies were my favourite – and the wild man on the right is a bit unnerving to say the least (I was never really sure where he was looking). I went around the exhibition twice, and on the second time I think I spent more time looking at the people’s reactions to the sculptures (delight, surprise, intrigue, curiosity).
The woman in bed was huge – this is a big gallery space and she is probably the length of a shipping container – in fact I remarked that she probably needed her own shipping container to get her over here.
The man in the boat. What is he thinking? “That’s not how you row a boat? And why is he naked?
The baby (newborn) was probably my least favourite – it is also a massive sculpture.
