Riusuke Fukahori – The Painted Breath

Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori loves goldfish.  They are the focal point of his debut New York exhibit “The Painted Breath” at Joshua Liner Gallery.  When you first look at his works, you might think – “oh, it’s a goldfish” and scratch your head as to the deeper significance.  But then you discover that despite looking like sculptures, the fish are made entirely out of resin, you will wonder how he did it.

To paint the goldfish as realistically as possible, he pours a layer of resin, lets it dry, then paints a small portion of the fish, lets it dry, then pours another layer of resin—patiently repeating these steps until the final product is a three-dimensional representation of a goldfish.  WOW!

When you see these works of art in person, you will really be blown away, so don’t just take my word for it.  See “The Painted Breath” by Riusuke Fukahori in person at Joshua Liner Gallery (located at 540 West 28th Street) in Manhattan.  The exhibit is up through January 18, 2014.
