Almost Alive: Hyperrealistic sculpture in art

Otto Letze, Nicole Fritz

From the 1960s and 1970s onwards, different sculptors became involved with a mode of  realism based on the physically lifelike  ap pearance of the human body. By deploying  traditional techniques of modelling, casting and  painting in order to recreate human figures they  follow different approaches towards a  contemporary form of figural realism.     

The sculptures show how the way we see ou r  bodies has been subject to constant change. The publication presents artworks of all  important representatives of Hyperrealism. From the early pioneers like George Segal, Duane  Hanson and John DeAndrea this comprehensive  selection demonstrates how Hyperr ealistic  sculptures continuously developed up to the current stars of the movement like Ron Mueck, Sam Jinks, Evan Penny, Tony Matelli and Patricia  Piccinini.
