Erik Jerezano’s latest series of drawings, titled Natural Selection, presents a world inhabited by bizarre composite creatures and circumstances.
Jerezano is renowned for his highly visionary drawings, which delve into metamorphosis. 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 he has evolved a personal mythology as he explores his psyche through the magical medium of his imagination. Jerezano’s beasts seem to have their own evolutionary mechanism of change, affected by chance influences and circumstances.
