Whoa. Wow. That is large talent.
This kind of stuff always freaks me out a little wee bit. Really puts the 'hyper' in hyper realism ;)
oh, I've always loved his work. Just one more reason I wish I lived in New York
Those aren't real people? Such talent!
whao. they kind of remind me of chuck close' paintings. they are so eerie like the realsim of americana. and the greasy face is so detailed!!
This takes me back to design school - he was a fave of one of my art history profs. I wonder how these hold up through the decades.
quite interesting! i kind of love it though. :) xo
His work creeps me out so bad. Of course, my inlaws -- who look very much like those tourist sculptures -- are similarly frightening.
Very creepy, but very real. Maybe that's why they're so creepy? I run into these people all the time. I'd probably try talking to one of them if I saw such a sculpture on the street. And they're timeless.
i would love to see this show in person. it looks like duane hunson had a lot to say about our culture.
hahaha! Love them. he's the got the frump look down pat!!!
Wow they're so realistic, fantastic
Sooooooo interesting really realistic...Luvxoxo
Kind of lets you know the way America looks...LOL! Interesting
Hey drollgirl! First time ever to visit your blog. It´s soooo interesting everything you write.xox
holy those aren't real people? wow that totally fooled me lol
The "Tourists" one just Made. My. LIFE.
So realistic...like there's cellulite on that tourist. OMG. Not cute.
My favorite professor, Lynn, went to a Duane Hanson show once. There was a gallery guard who was actually a piece. Lynn said if you stood still long enough, people would start to look at you like you were art, and the only way to tell real people from the sculptures was from the dust on the Hansons.
Creeps me right out!
So this is a coincidence. I just read on Wiki that Duane is from MN. I was at Chambers Hotel downtown Minneapolis a few weeks ago and saw two sculptures and I'm pretty sure they are by him. There was a write up on the sculptures in something I was reading the other day but I can't find it. Anyway, I was drunk and the sculptures scared the shit out of me because they were new and therefore not there last time I was there. Also, they were like, eight feet tall. Good story.
Wow! Very cool!!
I really have a love/hate thing with this artist. I love the attention to detail and the fascination factor, but they do kinda give me the willies.
Wow this is freaky.How is that a young shopper?I love the last one of the tourists!
i'm not into life imitating art and vice versa but i do think its amazing the work put into it. :)
These look so freakishly real! Wow!
coolness..I have to check it out!
have you ever been to disney world? looks a lot like that.
amazing that these are not real people!
The tourist is in my students' reading book. "Trompe L'oeil" is what they called it when the artist attempts to fool the eye. So cool.
His sculptures are so real, it's spooky! I've seen a couple of them on exhibit in Dallas or Fort Worth (I can't remember which museum it was).
These sculptures are actually really cool! I like it when people turn ordinary things into art!xxx
those are some seriously depressing sculptures.
these are amazing!
