ICN Press Release

ICN Pic 1Date: 11 – 21 December 2014

Times: Open daily from 12 – 6pm

Venue: 93-95 Sclater Street London E1 6HR

ICN Gallery proudly presents Goldfish Salvation 2 by Riusuke Fukahori, an artist internationally acclaimed for his 2012 video on his creative process. This is his second solo exhibition in the UK. The “Fukahori Goldfish” is a painting yet it grasps the ephemeral beauty of the goldfish captured in a flat plane of resin, and is vibrant and almost three-dimensional.

While reflecting on the conceptual idea valued in European and mainstream art culture, the piece puts emphasis on the method and aesthetics valued in Asian art. We hope you will be able to appreciate this ideology in the Fukahori piece.

Artist: Riusuke FUKAHORI (b.1973; Aichi, Japan)

Riusuke Fukahori is an active and internationally acclaimed painter of goldfish. He developed a unique technique of pouring resin into a container, and then directly painting goldfishes on top with acrylic paint. Cautiously pouring resin, waiting for it to harden, then depicting pictures layer

after layer allows the lines and colours to come together. This piece, which shows goldfish elegantly swimming in a body of water, is renowned worldwide.
