About The Artwork

A few raw, unedited photographs of ‘Ocean in a soup bowl’ by Souman Bose, painted with acrylic on several layers of resin inside a wooden bowl. This is one of the most technically difficult paintings as each layer of resin takes hours to dry and each layer of painting requires precision for the 3D effect to come alive. There’s no room for error in this rather expensive and time consuming process of art. circa 2024. More about the process, from the artist’s blog: Jan 5, 2023 spotted this koi, at a pond, today. hasn’t left my mind ever since. didn’t have my art tools with me, so did a quick watercolour on a piece of cloth, with just green acrylic & a paintbrush soon after. shall redo an elaborate painting, as soon as I’m at my atelier. For now, this 💚 #nofilter Jan 10, 2023 remember the koi, that i had spotted ?here’s how i caught it in a bowl by painting on layers of resin, using my paintbrush and acrylic. still a few more touches left though. Steps / Layers in the video (comments) i tried painting on this medium for the first time and gosh it’s tedious as each layer of resin takes 24 hours to heal (without blue light) and you can’t start the next layer, until the previous one has completely healed. Moreover, there’s no margin for error. It’s not paper or canvas that you can change things. If you paint one layer wrong, the entire art will be trashed. There are other challenges about painting on chemicals such as these, but more about that later. For now, only so much. #nofilter
