After visiting the Ron Mueck exhibition in Manchester, i finally realised that the sort of art  – in each  of it’s many guises – that attracts me most is the realistic sort. I find the recreation of something human, often far more pleasing and impressive than works of fantasy. Mainly, i think, for the fact that we have something to compare  and assess it against. Mueck’s sculptures are experiencing private moments of emotion and it feels odd being present – watching from just beyond the white tape barriers that protect them – because you were on your own when you last felt that way . It is compelling.
