Amazing Sculpture ...really nice piece of art...

Ron Mueck is a London-based photo-realist artist. Born in Melbourne,Australia, to parents who were toy makers, he laboured on children's television shows for 15 years before working in special effects for such films as Labyrinth, a 1986 fantasy epic starring David Bowie. 

Eventually Mueck concluded that photography pretty much destroys the physical presence of the original object, and so he turned to fine art and sculpture. In the early 1990's, still in his advertising days, Mueck was commissioned to make something highly realistic, and was wondering what material would do the trick. Latex was the usual, but he wanted something harder, more precise. Luckily, he saw a little architectural decor on the wall of a boutique and inquired as to the nice, pink stuff's nature. Fibreglass resin was the answer, and Mueck has made it his bronze and marble ever since.

You Can Change Your Mind Too

As babies we are born without negative thoughts about ourselves, or our lives. It isn't long before  we became exposed to beliefs and ideas. Our thinking becomes shaped by our life experiences, and interaction with the people around us. This exposure, over time, tends to programme our memories. This learning is commonly  referred to as automatic thinking or conditioning.

Thought is the ability to create images in our head. We tend to see our world through conditioned experiences of the past. When we don’t understand the role of our thinking we are at the mercy of whatever contaminated thoughts we have learned from our past. Until we understand the process of how thinking impacts emotions and behaviours, we are a slave to, or a product of our previous conditioning.

The great ability all of us have is to create our own thoughts. We are the creator of our own thoughts and perceptions. We choose our outlook. These thoughts can be a buffer against life's adversities, setbacks and failures. Our choice of thoughts will determine how we feel, and how we will respond to our environment.

How things look, how we feel and what we do are effects of thought. What we experience in life is determined by how we think. Our moment to moment outlook is very much dependent on the quality of our thinking.

The ability to recognise that we are the originator of all the thoughts in our mind alerts us to step outside them and not take bad thoughts seriously. How can we be afraid of something we have created? The past is alive only in our memory.

When we experience ourselves as the thinker, the creator of our own life, we can break free from past conditioning. We are then master of our own experience of the world. This puts us in the position that no thought has power over us because we made it up, we created it - we control it.

This realisation gives the power to see things differently to break with the past and establish new productive attitudes and behaviours Real self-empowerment takes place when we realise we are the thinker of our own thoughts and creator of our own feelings and destiny.

Interesting Sculpture!!

This sculptural masterpiece is in fact a shoe. It's constructed from a single piece of carbon fibre, laminated with rubber for the soles and leather on the side that touches the skin. The carbon fibre wraps around the wearer's foot forming support for both the heel and the ball of the foot.

Japanese sculptor Sayaka Kajita Ganz creates her amazing sculptures out of pre-loved goods, many of which look like they had a previous life as kitchen utensils. The artist feels that the pre-loved nature of the materials she uses adds life to the final sculptural works.


These amazing sculptures are created by Joe Pogan. He creates animal sculptures using various "found metal" objects like old watches, sprockets, nuts and bolts.
