Brand new Art Werger etchings with white ground. Image size 24 x 36”.
Seriously, have ever seen it done better?
From his website:
The images in Art Werger’s prints are anchored in his New Jersey childhood. His suburban scenes are lyrical and evocative of boyhood summer evening. 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 is a Printmaker who thrives in the technical complexitites of print media. He works in various forms of intaglio printmaking, which develop an image on a metal plate. During each of the many stages in making an intaglio print, Werger carefully refines his images to reflect the intense precision of the printmaking process.
Werger has works in the collection of The Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Boston Public Library, the Brooklyn Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Trenton City Museum in New Jersey.

I’m very upset when I do anything where I can see that it could have been done better. On that level, I’m a perfectionist. But I also have learned from my father, because he’s a perfectionist, that perfectionists can be really horrible to be around. So I’ve really tried to make sure that I can see the limitations of my own visions. Perfectionism can ruin and flatten things.
red wine is the answer.
