Art Werger
Tidal Shift # 1 (Young bathers stroll on beach with others out in surf Montauk)

2016

$700

About

'Tidal Shift' refers not only to the endangered coastal tideland but also to the psychological mindset of the characters. At first glance, the image projects seaside relaxation but there is a subtext in that the participants of this play are oblivious to the forces of the rising ocean and the impending consequences of the consumerist indulgences. The main visual emphasis is on the lighting of the natural setting but there is also a strong emphasis on the textures of waves, clouds and sand eliciting a visceral response, and on patterns and compositional placement of the figures that crowd the scene. This hand-drawn aquatint and white ground imagery is issued in an edition of 25. It is titled, numbered and signed in pencil. Art Werger is a Professor of Art in the Printmaking program at Ohio University where he was recently named a Presidential Research Scholar. He also taught at Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia, where he served as Division Chair of the Fine Arts. Werger recieved his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design in printmaking in 1978 and his MFA from the University of Wisconsin in 1982. As a master printmaker, he works with aquatint, etching and mezzotint, with some of his images printed in multi-plate colors. Werger has received over 250 awards in national and international exhibitions including: Award of the Rector: International Print Triennial in Krakow, Poland, 2012 and Grand Prize: Third International Mezzotint Festival in Yekaterinburg, Russia, 2015.
