“The Tide” by Menashe Kadishman
A piece by famous Israeli artist Menashe Kadishman. Only according to the destinations of paint strokes we recognize the sea with high waves. We feel volume and airiness at the same time. The foam and salt spray are reproduced masterfully. 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”.
