"Blaž Erzetič's creativity is labelled by enthusiasm upon expressing possibilities that new technologies offer. Conceptual basics of his digital creations derive from his reflections of scientific progress and new-world-men's obsession with high-tech devices with no useful value (series (F)utile Machines). His recent series Human Behaviour Season 2 is talking about relationship between human and machine. By observing Blaž Erzetic's formally and conceptually excellent works, I can see exceptional sensibility of percepting distorted values of modern society and degenerated interpersonal relations."
Nataša Kovšca, art critic

"I was pleasantly surprised when seeing Blaž Erzetic's computer generated graphics, science-fiction worlds that are becoming reality. He is mainly interested into human as a part of technologic world - the one he created and the same one that is becoming a threat to him. Blaž Erzetič is expressing his fascination upon options that new technology offers. He does that sensitively with great artistic inventiveness. He is also conscious critic of new trends."
Rudi Pergar, painter

"Tir Gallery's program is oriented towards presenting interesting, penetrating and perspective young authors, which Blaž Erzetič surely is. With his exhibition entitled (F)utile Machines he positively surprised a wide range of visitors, whether those were young computer enthusiasts or experienced contemporary art lovers. With incredible precision and trickling connecting of "old" and "new", he sattisfies visualy-aesthetic needs of even very demanding modern observer. With his strong content he doesn't leave empty handed also the ones who seek a deeper (socio-critical) messages. Blaž Erzetič is the author who leaves the trace."
