New Aquatic Wildlife Painted in Layers of Resin by Keng Lye

Flickr, Facebook,(kenglye) on deviantART

With the exception of the repurposed containers, almost every aspect of these artworks by Singapore-based artist Keng Lye  has been rendered in acrylic paint, carefully applied within layers of clear resin. A fish in a plastic bag, a tin can of tadpoles swirling under a frog on a lilypad, and even a completely convincing betta constructed from carved resin and painted with acrylic—each work a strange, lifelike amalgam of painting and sculpture.
