Environments 140 by Shalev Mann

Environments #140 Oil on Canvas. 39.4 H x 59.1 W x 0.6 in

In this piece, one of a large series of paintings, Israeli artist Shalev Mann paints on the canvas a patchwork of soft earthy colors reminiscent of desert camouflage or, as is suggested by the title, fields as might be viewed from an airplane. Sparsely scattered across the canvas are small black marks that might be field workers. The painting is soothing, but also serves as a reminder of how the environments are shaped by human activity.
