erez is a sydney based ceramic artist who was born in israel and moved to australia in 1998.
it is the textures, forms, rhythms and materials of architecture, specifically brutalism that influences and shapes his work and practice. the term brutalism is derived from the french phrase "béton brut" which translate as raw concrete. erez's background is in graphic design. it is the imposing, geometric nature of brutalist buildings and their graphics quality that he finds inspiration.
erez's work is hand built using a clay slab technique that he finds is suited to constructing his static, monolithic forms. for him, the slab has an immediacy and materiality similar to concrete. his work is finished using slips on the outside surfaces and only opts to glaze the work on the inside in order to maintain a level of functionality.
erez is of the view that the contested value of brutalism that has seen the demolition of many buildings in sydney is further reason to celebrate the formal qualities of this architectural style.
