Art Werger
Continuum (36 mezzotints on a single sheet that are distinct yet connected)

2001

$1,200

About

Continuum is a single sheet on which are printed 36 individual mezzotints. This collection of mezzotints is printed in a limited edition of 25. Each of the 36 images portrays a moment in time for ordinary people. It shows a continuous sequence in which adjacent elements are not perceptibly different from each other, although the extremes are quite distinct. Art Werger’s lyrical suburban scenes are evocative of boyhood summer evenings while his city images are fraught with tension and isolation. Many of his mezzotints show the influence of film noire genre movies as well as paying tribute to the cinematic techniques of Alfred Hitchcock. In describing his work, Werger says “the people are seen in casual activities which dominate their daily routines, often preoccupied or oblivious to their situations. They are often observed from an elevated point so that the environment lays out in front of the viewer. The viewer becomes an omniscient voyeur, privy to the world below, yet curiously removed from it. As a cinematic device, this abstract angle allows for an overview of the scene as well as an introduction to the characters within the environment. The characters’ actions are intended to suggest a narrative which requires the viewer’s participation to be resolved.”
