Building with sticks and stones

Calling an art exhibition Sticks & Stones has got to conjure up a sort of childlike, if not naïve, context in most people’s minds. In case you can’t quite recall the complete line from the nursery rhyme, it goes thus: “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never harm me.” Painter Dafna Alon fully admits to taking an unaffected, if not insouciant, approach to her art, and to life in general. That comes across, plain and clear, in her new exhibition which opened last week at the Caprice Gallery in Tel Aviv.
