Ron Mueck

Babs Bitchin (who I came to via Paula) blogged about this artist Ron Mueck, and gave a link, which led me to a half-hour video on his work, in particular the creation of one fantastic piece. It's absolutely well worth the time. Mueck is a hyper-realist who came out of the special FX industry. So is it art or is it only modelling? I came away thinking it was definitely art, with more craftsmanship than most.
