Narrative close upFrom Rising Tide

Werger has always supplemented his studio work with drawing directly from the natural landscape. His preferred method is to work with colored media on black paper. Many of these subjects eventually find their way back into his Intaglio work, most often the subject of ocean side cliffs.

For him there is a parallel between the drama of this natural erosion and the process of acid eating away metal.
