“Circles” by Menashe Kadishman
A piece by famous Israeli artist Menashe Kadishman. The painter's trademark are hundreds of portraits of sheep, each one unique. On the painting we see a sheep head surrounded by multicolor circles, that remind the nimbus. At the 1978 Venice Biennale, Kadishman showed sheep for the first time: he presented a flock of colored sheep as living art. The artist 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”.
