(Valencia, Carabobo State, 1947/2012)
Sculptor and painter. Between 1965 and 1969 he studied at the School of Plastic Arts Arturo Michelena. Between 1977 and 1981 he lives in France and takes courses at the University of Vincennes. In Paris, he comes in contact with the geometric and constructivist languages that will define his later production. In mid-1981 he returned to Venezuela and settled in Valencia (Carabobo state), where he lived and worked until the end of his days. In its beginnings, Zerep enters in different artistic techniques such as the engraving in metal, the etching and the water ink until evolving towards the sculpture. In the first pieces he uses the wood and scraps of metal that he transforms into figures, to later carry out works of a constructivist character. Zerep has participated in several editions of the Official Hall (between 1967 and 1969), the Aragua Room (between 1967 and 1990), the Salon des Grands et Jeunes d'Aujourd'hui (Paris, 1978 and 1981), the Salon Novembre The Museum of Modern Art, Monaco, 1979), the II and III Biennial of the Young Sculpture (Polychronopoulos Museum, Athens, 1979 and 1981), "Images de l'Amerique Latine "(Paris, 1980)," Art Expo "(Galerie Roswita Benkert, Zurich, Switzerland, 1986), the II Havana Art Biennial (1986), the 1st Guiana Biennial (1987) Sculptures of Budapest (1987). In 1987 he obtained the Grand Prize at the XII Salón Aragua for a sculpture in welded iron (Untitled), in which increasing and decreasing serial structures in fragile balance produce the sensation of absolute cessation of movement.
From his work, the researcher Víctor Guedez points out that "Jorge Zerep starts from a simple geometric vocabulary: he always selects short cubes that are concreted according to a filiform and squared meaning. With this approach he orders convergences within precise interactions, where the diversity of proportions suggests that each major element contains other minors who try to play the game of virtual dynamism. All this architecture obeys a methodical disposition that is solved in a comprehensive structure and that shows an extraordinary constructive competence "(1988).
