Striding in Purse

Hava Gal-On

Unique piece. Vintage shoe, mixed media and perspex bag, 2019.

I engage in mixed materials and also collects readymade artifacts that can be found on its way (shoes, luggage, trays, chairs, drawers, cardboard packaging and more), which are converted into artistic objects and installations.

I take every day objects and turns them into aesthetic manifestation – whether it is objects, collages and others. I use feminine articles such as nail varnish, my own high heel shows and rouge in order to create art. My objects are loaded with messages that are at times mystic and always optimistic, almost ideological. On the one hand the works document visual reality, while on the other hand they express the sensations that these familiar shapes give rise to.
