Betty Danon


Betty Danon (Istanbul 1927 - Milano 2002)

(...) All my work is based on a dynamic

and dialectic research within an interior

dimension invariably centred on man

as a spectator and protagonist in a world

of endless combinations and probabilities…

all considered a big enigma about

what concerns being and becoming,

the happenings of micro and macrocosm,

the mystery of chance, the ambiguity of reality.

The basic element I use to express myself

is l i n e, as a dynamic psychic force.

By superimposing signs and the endless

possibile combinations I carry out an analysis

of surface-space, space-time-rhythm

relationships, and I make what I call “abstract scores”.(...)
