Bettina Werner


Bettina Werner is an Italian artist based in New York City. Werner studied at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera. She has created artwork with her colorized salt technique since the early 1980s. Salt's crystallized texture intrigued Werner and encouraged her to explore different combinations of textures and colors creating a unique and signature artistic language. Her salt paintings, sculptures, art installations and functional pieces of artwork are exhibited in major museums and galleries, including the Whitney Museum, the Pushkin Museum in Moscow, the Detroit Institute of Art, Las Vegas Art Museum, Chase Manhattan Bank, the collection of Herbert and Dorothy Vogel, and the collection of Martin Margulies in Miami.
