Dimora del Tempo

The non-place, decked by thirst
to the ray devotes its duration.
Here I can see you.

Paul Celan – “Homestead of Time”

Dimora del Tempo

Duran’s alphabet, even if her first figurative works are remarkable, (and I own a few) is born from the abstractionism, with the identification of emotional pathways and the principles of reality’s perception, reaching the definition of a language based on the expressive and symbolic function of colour and on the rhythm produced by mutual relations of pure forms. Can a pictorial form also have a value of appearance? Definitely so in our case.
