Featured works by: Art Werger    

The images in Art Werger's intaglio prints are anchored in his New Jersey childhood. His suburban scenes are lyrical and evocative of boyhood summer evenings. His city scenes are fraught with tension and isolation. Some of Werger's prints show the influence of film noir genre movies as well as paying tribute to the cinematic techniques of Alfred Hitchcock. Through realistic portrayals of scenes viewed from unusual angles, he creates a dream-like detachment from the events taking place.

Werger states, "All of my work involves a level of voyeurism or intrusion. I want my images to create a tension based on phobic response, whether it's a fear of falling or drowning. I want to elicit an active response to the representational image. Rather than intending to comfort the viewer, I want to challenge preconceptions". Werger has exhibited internationally and has works in several collections, including the Boston Public Library, the Brooklyn Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
