“Forrest” by Menashe Kadishman
A piece by famous Israeli artist Menashe Kadishman. The abstract painting deals with the perception of objects, their shades and colors. Trees here are asssociations of spectators. 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”.
