Where are you going?


SAME PLACE.

What are you doing? SAME THING.

What are you eating? SAME THING.

.

In a world with so much SAMENESS, artist Eriberto Oriol does NOT want to create the same thing over and over. He feels is not natural for life to do and be the SAME THING over and over every day. He does not want to live his life that way.

.

In this Caras/Faces series, Eriberto is more playful but still, as he sometimes says, meditating with his eyes open. He allows his imagination to take him where it may. It is hard for Eriberto to find meaning in his work. He just seems to follow his inspiration.

.

Eriberto has several styles in his art. He paints, he draws, he takes photos, he cooks and he lives. Even in his walks, he is always looking for a different route, a different place to explore.

.

As a mature artist, many masters in the art have influenced him. He loves spending time and time again reviewing great artworks from Africa, Asia, Mesoamerica, and others. He is in awe of their creativity and imagination.

.

Some say, “Where there is light, there is a dream.” For an artist, sustainability through their art is the Dream.

Imagination, is it Madness?


The painting “Into the Night,” seems to be a psychological journey of the human condition.

They say that some of the most powerful works of art emerge from the artist’s darkest moments and when an artist is pushing the envelope; for some, the work may appear to be shocking.

 

Eriberto’s work has a unique artistic vocabulary. His characters seemed to be looking with curiosity and seem to be haunting moments of human life and in a sort of apocalyptic flare showing the basic fears encountered by most people.

There is a certain kind of freedom that comes from madness. With civilization come the rules and regulations. Who is really free? Who are the normal people; those who are free to act on their instincts and desires; or those who are ruled by regulations and expectations?

As an artist, Eriberto Oriol, is not interested in following the rules and schools of art. He feels that humanity has been bestowed with great gifts; perhaps the greatest of them all is imagination because it has the power to change the world.

 

Some say, “Where there is light, there is a dream.” For an artist, sustainability through their art is the Dream.
