Julie Rico Art Review on artist Eriberto Oriol


Eriberto is a Los Angeles based painter he creates work with a Latin world ethos. A confluence of European and Indigenous Indian cultures.

The term “Cosmic Race”, is brought to mind in this work, coined by Jose Vasconcelos a Mexican philosopher. Vasconcelos believed that nationality and race is transcended by Latin Americans with their Asian-descended native Americans, European and African heritage. You can see in Oriol’s work the same kind of merging of cultures.

Oriol provides us a reflection of the indigenous dream like state. The dreams that brought wisdom and guidance to the tribe were achieved with the ceremonial use of alkaloids such as Peyote or Ayahuasca. The skillful interpretation that Mr. Oriol achieves in his work reflects the forces of the universe as it affects our collective journey into the unconscious. At the same time the colors the painting techniques emphasize European influences.

The work is not easy. Like Picasso’s Guernica that shows the tragedy of war. The internal struggle is what is emphasized in Mr. Oriol’s work. We feel the power we have within ourselves with this work.

Many of the works are clearly phallic. Just prior to the sexual revolution in the 60’s and 70’s American art was overly affected by Christian values of the Puritans. The phallus was usually hidden not exposed as in Mr. Oriol’s paintings. The sexual revolution allowed the phallus to show up in sculptures and other contemporary art. Look at work by Louise Bourgeois and Andy Warhol. Surely, this affected Mr. Oriol a product of that time.

But let’s go back even further to pre-Columbian times where we see references to the phallus as an important cultural icon to the indigenous populations all over the world. The influences of pre-Columbian art cannot be denied in this work. The paintings are not always pleasant. They are; however, wondrous and terrifying and beautiful portraying dream likes states of mind.

As was the intention of the Indigenous their dreams were meant to help the community at large. It is the same with Mr. Oriol’s work. He may want us to see the hidden power of our animal nature. As witnesses to our hidden power in the paintings, will we be overcome the angst, the sometimes powerlessness we feel in our daily lives. The power of the phallus is in our DNA, we cannot separate ourselves from our animal nature. Contemplation is key to our understanding of our place here in the world. Mr. Oriol’s paintings help us see an inner world.

“Small DIC tator” Text by Angelica Oriol


“The “Small DIC tator ”

This is one of the paintings in “Are We Dancing with A Madman?” series by artist Eriberto Oriol.

The “Small DIC tator ” painting reminds me of how throughout history we have seen insecurities, fears and the insatiable greed dictate violence and hate on people who possessed the wealth that the Empire wanted. Resources such as the land, its’ people, oil, minerals, diamonds, and water have often been a threat to the peace and sovereignty of that country.

“Small DIC tator” Text by Angelica Oriol

Eriberto does not try to paint work that deals with social issues and does not care to find meaning in his work. However, it is through our conversations that my writings emerge. It makes me wonder if in a “redactive” world, would there be room for artists such as Alfredo Siqueiros with his mural “America Tropical,” Goya’s “Los Caprichos,” or for other artists that encourage a public dialogue of our collective consciousness?

As artists, we often see what others do not see.  For some, our journey is a quest for a moral life and social change. The dream is to be able to tell the TRUTH, use our creativity and imaginations to take us beyond the basic purpose of art; forge a new pathway for a world that would be about human kindness, caring, sharing and to create a world that never was.

“They’re There for The Taking” painting by Eriberto Oriol


“They’re There for The Taking” is one of the social commentaries paintings in “Are We Dancing with A Madman?” series by artist Eriberto Oriol.
While women have much to contribute, for the most part, global societies have assigned restrictive roles that limit their potential. In this metaphorical painting, the artist is being brutally honest in questioning the predator/prey type relationship.
The furry body emphasizes how women are viewed as an animal and are subject to the hunt whether they like it or not.
The insect-like image symbolizes the pest that means to destroy or harm. Is this a hopelessness human behavior of a patriarchal world? Can we get over the repugnance correlation of women like animals in the food chain?
Artist Edgar Degas once said, “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” If this painting facilitates a discussion that acknowledges this behavior, maybe we can empower ourselves and make plans to stand differently in this world.

Are we DANCING with a MAD MAN?


This artwork “HAPPY HOUR in DANTE’s INFERNO” by Eriberto Oriol

Eriberto has been activist for a long time and when the social political climate seems like “We are Dancing with a Mad Man” what does a series artist do? 

It is said, “A musician must make music, an artist must paint, and a poet must write if he is to be at peace with himself.” Abraham Maslow

For Eriberto, he must paint.

 

It takes courage to walk through the unbeaten path, especially in a society full of noisy distractions. For Eriberto that is his challenge. How does he use his ingenuity in looking at the world and continue to stay committed to creating his art?

So if you have a passion for art and are wide eye looking for something extraordinary, visit his BLOG ForbiddenArtLA.com. to see more of Eriberto’s artwork.
