Riusuke Fukahori's London debut exhibition "Goldfish Salvation" transforms ICN gallery into the world of goldfish. When struggling with artistic vision, Fukahori's pet goldfish became his inspiration and ever since his passion and lifelong theme. His unique style of painting uses acrylic on clear resin which is poured into containers, resulting in a three-dimensional appearance and lifelike vitality.
Cast in a variety of vessels - from large sushi basins to the hollow insides of black bamboo - these kind of "living sculptures" are a delicate balance between painting and sculpture. The artist's meticulous attention to detail coupled with the tedious nature of the style creates highly dynamic three-dimensional pieces that capture the delicacy and animated nature of the fish.
