Hava Gal-On is an exceptional artist. The corpus of her work extends over four decades, each of which deserves contemplation in depth.
Her works are straightforward and colorful, their painterly perception naïve. The images are simple and overflowing with details depicting verbal and formal ornamentalism. The contents of her endeavors are related to dreaming, fantasy, spirituality and Biblical stories, including reactions to current events and issues.
Hava paints using various techniques, with expressive brush strokes and paint gushing straight from the tube. She creates works from objets trouvés and uses ready-mades taken from her private surroundings (suitcases, ironing board, closet mirrors, food trays, trampolines, personal shoes) as well as items from the Israeli cultural surroundings (jerry cans, tire strip etc).
Chiefly reflected in her work is her love of creativity, color and happiness. The challenges lying at the root of painting, and the painterly indecisiveness they engender, touch primarily upon the kind of simplicity derived from Gal-On's rich life-craving optimistic view.
