Please view details of “The Tide” by Menashe Kadishman
Menashe Kadishman was born in 1932. Although Kadishman produced a wide range of art, he remains best remembered as a sculptor and painter who created a great variety of sheep images in different artistic styles including especially Minimalism, Conceptual Art, and Neo-Expressionism. The artist believed, that “art grows from feelings and not rational calculations alone”. Significantly, the author usually transfers his message through colors and expressive eyes of his heroes, as, for instance, described in the blog about “Gesture to Mondriaan” series.
The waves are depicted airy, spectators feel their volume. Also, the painter masterfully conveys the foam and salt spray. Forms and destinantion of paints transmit the motion. Interestingly, inside the waves one can recognize different figures. For instance, in the center two eyes seem to appear. They resemble of a sheep silhouette, so common for the art by Menashe Kadishman. The water here is as transparent as the sky. The painting captivates with its depth.

Additionally, our gallery has several sculptures by Menashe Kadishman. Kadishman‘s works are full of references to Holy books. The images of grazing flocks and shepherds appear in his art due to the experience as a shepherd in a kibbutz in his youth. The blog about a shepherd in his art might be interesting. The artist associated himself with the shepherd, and at the 1978 Venice Biennale he presented an actual colored flock of sheep and himself leaded it.
