Erik Jerezano: A Bone Garden and its Communication Tactics
My work originates from a visual language I term visceral-intuitive, a figurative-based practice that combines anthropomorphism, fable and the grotesque in ways that offer abstract encounters.
The subjects of my work have a life cycle of their own, within which is contained a regeneration of form and a sense of rebirth. I am constantly evoking images of transition in a nonlinear narrative.
Mutation and transformation are the main subjects of the most recent pieces. I have always been enamored by characters in fables and popular tales that have the possibility to become something else, to transform into another body. My fascination with these beings is multilayered, and I often reflect upon the risks taken during the transitional state.
