The “Lunatics have taken over the asylum”


“The Thinker” by Eriberto Oriol

Have you ever wonder if the “Lunatics have taken over the asylum” and we are now left just dancing with Madmen?

A predator’s mind is full of fear and insecurity. They can find no peace in a state of flux so they thrive on feeding its victims more of the unknown to control and to take away the right to speak.

The uncertainty goes up with every breaking news story and unanswered question. It all adds to the stress and anxiety of our collective mind. Yes, the “Lunatics have taken over the asylum” and we are now left dancing with Madmen.

This photo is called“The Thinker.” It was taken of one of the public restrooms right in the heart of downtown San Diego, Horton Plaza and known as “America’s Finest City.”

The title of the photo was taken from the most important sculptor of the modern era François Auguste René Rodin sculpture, “The Thinker.”

Lyrics of the song below.

Fun Boy Three music group popularize the song The Lunatics Have Taken Over The Asylum from 1981 to 1983 and the attribution to Rowland is reported to have occurred at least as early as 1926, in the work A Million and One Nights by Terry Ramsaye.

“The Lunatics have taken over the asylum” Lyrics

I see a clinic full of cynics
Who wants to twist the peoples’ wrist
They’re watching every move we make
We’re all included on the list

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum

No nuclear the cowboy told us
And who am I to disagree
‘Cause when the madman flips the switch
The nuclear will go for me

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum

I’ve seen the faces of starvation
But I just can not see the point
‘Cause there’s so much food here today
That no one wants to take away

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum, take away my right to choose

The lunatics have taken over the asylum, take away my point of view
The lunatics have taken over the asylum

The lunatics have taken over the asylum, take away my dignity
Take these things away from me

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum, take away my family

Take away the right to speak
The lunatics have taken over the asylum take away my point of view

Take away my right to choose

“Are we Dancing with a Madman?”


Through his paintings, artist Eriberto Oriol is helping us see what others at times may not see. He allows the creativity of his imagination to be seen in his work.

Historically that is what artists have done. For example, artists such as Francisco Goya’s etchings “Los Caprichos” and Pablo Picasso’s with “Guernica” documented some of the cruel and inhumane events of the war, greed, and power. Some felt that these bizarre paintings were a sign of madness, completely off the wall because they were different from everyone else’s.

I would argue that these artists were really in tune with the creative force of the universe.

Are we Dancing with a Madman?


For artists like Eriberto, they do not set out to paint these images, nor try to find meaning in the symbolism of the images or choice of colors, yet they seem to hold powerful meanings.

He feels it is a privilege to have the unique distinction of being an artist that allows him to see a world that is not always obvious and hopes that “Dancing with a Madman” series help others to detect their own gleam of light.

The Zebra Man in Dancing with a Madman painting series by Eriberto Oriol


The Zebra Man Drawing by Eriberto Oriol
Text by Angelica Oriol

 

The GENIUS OF AN ARTIST is when they allow themselves to get into their creative zone and tap into the world of the creative unconsciousness. It is an omniscient world.   A world that holds: world history, philosophy, mythology, and the mysteries of the unknown.

The Zebra Man is one of Eriberto’s art pieces in the series, “Dancing with a Madman.”   When you look at the Zebra man, he seems to be incarcerated physically. However, he is spiritually jailed as well. It is the zebras’ illusion of the blending of instinct and intuition that makes him a powerful animal that has survived against many odds. The zebra may be a powerful metaphor reminding us of the importance of encouraging and supporting each other. You see, the zebra can only sleep when another member of the herd next to it is awake and on guard. They must work together to protect and guide the herd to the safety and resources they require.

For artists like Eriberto, he does not set out to paint these images, nor try to find meaning in the symbolism of the images or choice of colors, yet they seem to hold powerful meanings. He feels it is a privilege to have the unique distinction of being an artist that allows him to see a world that is not always obvious. He knows that art is not what you see but what it makes you think and hopes that “Dancing with a Madman” series help others to detect their own gleam of light.
