Theme:

Ron Mueck is known for portraying humans at key stages in the life cycle, from birth through middle age, to death. In works that are either monumental in scale or undersized, he explores the human condition and psyche, often conveying feelings of loneliness, vulnerability and alienation. The theme of bed-ridden, terminal illness, regularly reappears in Mueck's work.
