Durner’s artistic practice embraces the use of pigments in its many forms, from oils to acrylics and gouaches applied to canvas and paper. More notable are her poured enamels, a series of exquisite abstract compositions of framed and unbounded color. Durner was an artist-inresidence
at the Leighton Studios, Banff Centre for the Arts and has also curated many exhibitions. She has published art theory and lectured on a number of topics including the American landscape, gestural abstraction and phenomenology, conceptualism and sources, among others. Her work is in numerous private collections. She lives and works in New York City.
