• UNPREDICTABLE PATTERNS Curated by Tamara Toledo

    Exhibition: February 2 to March 25, 2017
    Opening Reception: Thursday, February 2, 2017, 7-10pm
    Curator Talk and Artist-led Tour: Thursday, February 2, 2017, 8-8:30pm


    Artists Nahúm Flores, Erik Jerezano and Ilyana Martínez formed an artist collective in 2004 meeting weekly to collaborate on works that incorporate drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, and site–specific installations. As individual artists and as members of Z’otz* Collective their work embody themes of migration, displacement, transition and transformation. Their aesthetic language captures a collective imaginary that helps us grasp the multi-layered unpredictable complexities of contemporary life.

    Both subtly and overtly, the artists in this exhibition reclaim an unstable perception of belonging and are able to communicate how the body and soul are fractured, can never return to be the same, once displaced. Framed layers of meaning indicate a revelation of experiential truth, a memory of place and of a people translated spontaneously by a subconscious that does not cease to impact. Physical transformation unites these artists as they wander individually and collectively, lingering on themes indicative of their journeys of cultural, emotional and spatial migration.

  • TransAMERICAS: A sign, a situation, a concept

    September 10th, 2016 to December 11th, 2016

    TransAMERICAS features collage, graphics, textile, photographs, video, sculpture and installation works by Laura Barrón, Dianna Frid, Alexandra Gelis, Pablo Helguera, Manolo Lugo, Juan Ortiz-Apuy, Eugenio Salas, José Seoane, José Luis Torres, Clarissa Tossin, and Giorgia Volpe. Certain endeavours function as catalysts for community building, including performances, a mural work by the Z’otz* Collective (Nahúm Flores, Erik Jerezano and Ilyana Martínez), and an ongoing, interactive project coordinated by London filmmaker Juan Andrés Bello.

    In TransAMERICAS: A sign, a situation, a concept, artists examine relationships formed between people and places, including resonant and often overlapping themes of community, travel, bridges and language. The contemporary practices featured in the exhibition go beyond Eurocentric conceptions of Latin American culture, transcending stereotypical and reductive views of the fantastic or exotic. The artists live and work in Canada, the United States, and Southwestern Ontario, which have diverse communities of people of Latin American heritage. This presence is increasing, contributing narratives to the national and continental experience.

    FALL OPENING RECEPTION: Wednesday, September 21, 2016 | 6 – 9 PM | FREE

    Exploring themes of inter-cultural translation, displacement and identity construction, this exhibition brings together a group of Canadian artists of diverse cultural backgrounds whose works examine the immigrant condition. Comprising recent and new works in a variety of media, including site-specific installations developed for the context of this exhibition, Yonder approaches the notion of immigration through a process of “personal sociology”, moving from an investigation of subjective inquiries to larger questions and shared experiences. As first or second generation Canadians, the artists draw upon their own narratives while inviting responses based on commonalities and differences.

  • A Bone Garden and its Communication Tactics


    September 12 - October 24, 2015

    We are thrilled to present Mexican-born artist Erik Jerezano and hope you can join us for the opening reception Saturday, September 12th from 1pm -4pm. Please RSVP to gallery@alisonmilne.com.

    Contemporary artist Erik Jerezano is enamored by characters in fables and popular tales that have the ability to become something else, to transform into another body. His pale illustrations with muted watercolours and delicate ink lines are drawn as though belonging to a children's fairytale book, and yet the characters are darker and grimmer than the anticipated bunny rabbits or flying adventurers.

  • Endlessly Looping


    From November 23 to December 21 2013
    Opening reception on Saturday November 23 at 3pm

    Galerie Trois Points is pleased to present Endlessly Looping, Erik Jerezano’s latest exhibition of drawings in which the artist presents a world inhabited by bizarre composite creatures in mysterious circumstances.

    Jerezano is well known for his highly visionary drawings which delve into the metaphorical and the mutation. For him, the creative process requires the pursuit of a balance that is both visual and emotional. He does not set out with a preconceived idea but rather waits for the image to speak and lead him to new forms. Gradually, through the magical medium of the artist’s imagination and psyche, a personal mythology has been developed.

  • Z'otz* Collective The Substitutes and the Absence


    Curated by Blair Fornwald

    September 6 to October 27, 2013
    Artist talk: Friday, September 6, 6:00 pm, RPL Film Theatre
    Opening Reception: Friday, September 6, 7:00 pm, Central Gallery

    For almost a decade, the members of Z'otz* Collective have met on a weekly basis for collaborative drawing sessions. Reminiscent of the Surrealist game of the Exquisite Corpse, they pass drawings and small terracotta sculptures around their studio table, each modifying the work-in-progress until it is unanimously declared to be complete. Through this process, a complex and polyvocal mythos has emerged, comprised of images drawn from folklore and the collective imaginary, featuring mutant and anthropomorphic beasts in various states of transformation. Darkly humorous and unpredictable, the multi-headed, multi-limbed beings imagined by Z'otz* Collective express the experience of being-together in an increasingly complex social, political, and cultural environment. The Collective will produce large-scale wall and window drawings for the Dunlop Art Gallery, which will be accompanied by small drawings and sculptures produced during their weekly sessions.

    About the Artists:
    Nahúm Flores, Erik Jerezano, and Ilyana Martínez are Z'otz* Collective, formed in Toronto in 2004. The group collaborates on multi-media works, which include drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, and site–specific drawing installations. The members of the Collective have exhibited extensively, both individually and collaboratively throughout Canada, the United States, Central and South America, and Europe.

    Fiona Smyth, Holly Lee, Erik Jerezano
    3/13/2013 - 4/28/2013
    INDEXG (main gallery)
    50 Gladstone Avenue, Toronto

    OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, March 16, 2013 - 3-6 pm

    The works in Shan Hai Jing Dialogue re-examine the shared genetic mystic roots of story telling, present or past. Constantly posting questions of the meaning of reality, and seeing. Ancient memories passed down to us as oral traditions, blurry images and words - as "mythology" often so hard to interpret and make sense. But the word "present" posts an even bigger challenge, it becomes past at every instance of a thought.

  • Z'otz* Collective at MacLaren Art Cetre


    Hourglass Continent reunites artists that formed the Latin Collective at Ontario College of Art + Design. They have remained allied by mutual purpose and awareness while their careers distinctly evolved in disparate locations. Each has developed an intensive, extended drawing practice that involves pronounced elements of Mexican and Central American iconography, mythology and history, combined with personal experiences.

    Montreal-based Osvaldo Ramirez Castillo and Oaxaca, México-based Oscar Camilo de las Flores were born in El Salvador and displaced during its civil war of the 1980s. Toronto-based Z’otz* Collective includes Nahúm Flores (born Honduras), Erik Jerezano (born Mexico) and Ilyana Martínez (born Canada).

    Hourglass Continent connotes an active, flowing Americas cultural diaspora that retains a distinctive granular composition as it pours across boundaries and over time.

    It is a great pleasure to announce that my work will be included in the next issue of LE GUN : Magazine of International Illustration: Issue 5.

    Somewhere between art object and pulp fiction, LE GUN 5 is a collage of art by disparate individuals, a free wheeling visual poem punctuated with literary, profound and absurd quotes always sailing on the side of the surreal and exposing the darker recesses of its warped contributors minds, a celebration of drawing and story telling.


    LE GUN is an art collective established by graduates from London’s Royal College of Art’s department of Communication Art and Design that puts out an eponymous magazine.

  • Reaction at a distance: collaborative drawings

    Erik Jerezano & Kristin Bjornerud | Collaborative Drawings

    20 novembre 2010 au 18 décembre 2010

    Galerie Trois-Points is thrilled to expose the works of Kristin Bjornerud and Erik Jerezano stemming from a collaborative project. The exhibition Reaction at a distance: collaborative drawings, which will take place between November 20th and December 18th, illustrates their shared keen interest in storytelling and the value of symbolic language.

    Their collaborative project is essentially a correspondence through drawing. Separately, each of them begins a set of drawings to be exchanged through the mail and completed by the other. When they started the work a year ago, the guidelines they laid out for themselves were quite simple: there would be no rules about how they could alter the original piece and there would be no quitting whatever the results. This sharing back and forth without boundaries allowed them to work without inhibition.
