“Angels” by Menashe Kadishman
A piece by famous Israeli artist Menashe Kadishman. Symmetrical colors and unusual composition of the painting make it interesting for the spectator to fancy the story of the angels. They are shown so abstract, that everyone can feel the mood, that is convenient for a person in the exact moment. The painter's trademark are hundreds of portraits of sheep, each one unique. At the 1978 Venice Biennale, Kadishman showed sheep for the first time: he presented a flock of colored sheep as living art. Kadishman is well-known for earthworks, sculptures, performances, installations, and paintings redolent with religious themes. He believed, that “art grows from feelings and not rational calculations alone”.
