Today's Observer profile of Ron Mueck describes reaction to his sculpture Mother and Child (above), and describes him as 'the finest artist of his generation'. On An Overgrown Path totally agrees, and wrote about the impact of Mueck's work back in December 2004 after we saw his monumental scuplture Boy in the stunning new Aros Gallery in Arhus, Denmark.
There is currently a Ron Mueck exhibition at the National Galleries of Scotland. The Edinburgh Festival opens on August 13th, and there will be a Festival preview On An Overgrown Path later this week.
