Artist’s Goldfish Painted in Acrylic Between Layers of Resin

Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori returns to Joshua Liner Gallery this week for his second solo show, Goldfish Salvation. Fukahori has become popular for his drawings of goldfish painted in acrylic within layers of resin, most usually the forms of goldfish as they swim through small wooden boxes or inside bamboo hats. He mentions dozens of live fish kept in aquariums in his studio as he works, with some pieces taking some months to gradually complete, layer by layer.
