  • Name of Entrant:Art Werger
  • Title of Work:Requiem
  • Nationality:United States
  • Artist Statement:
    My recent work continues to explore themes of time/space and the nature of representation as shared experience. Through the media
    of etching and mezzotint, these pieces attempt to place the viewer into an active relationship with the image. The subject is presented in a
    realistic manner but often observed form an oblique aerial angle, forcing the viewer into an unusual role, not unlike the omniscient narrator in a work of the viewer. The viewer is privy to the world below, yet curiously removed form 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. This is intended to suggest a narrative which ultimately requires the viewers’ participation.
