Have you ever seen a FLOWER that is NAKED?


There are times that we are like beautiful naked flowers, vulnerable, delicate, and exposed. In times like this, maybe all we need is to be heard, understood or just to be held.
For some, life can be ferocious, especially when one is trying so hard to follow ones’ dream. “Do I have what it takes to withstand the storm? Am I enough?” one may ask. …
Flowers are Naked by Eriberto Oriol

Flowers are Naked by Eriberto Oriol

Only to be told, “Forget it, just think positive and don’t talk about it!”
Not being able to talk about it might be one of the worst parts about being stressed or depressed. And if you do talk about it, some will be asking, “What is wrong with you? Why are you so negative?”
In this series of paintings, ‘FLOWERS are NAKED’ artist Eriberto Oriol has exaggerated some of the sexual icons in hope that they startle one into questioning the role that society plays in defining social roles and the rules it imposes.
For Eriberto, there is no absolute right or wrong. For him, to slay the Dragon that is within us is to listen to the wisdom of the heart and to have strength and courage to choose not to live by other peoples’ rules.

Are you an artist without style?


Picasso once said: “When I think about it, I’d say I’m an artist without style. Style puts constraints on the artist …” Picasso had many different styles, i.e. he had his Blue Period, African Period, Cubism and others.

 

Eriberto also has several styles in his art and he does not limit his creativity to his art.

If you have been a guest in Eriberto Oriol’s studio, you would know that for him; a taco is not just a taco.

It’s like he sometimes says, “Life is about meditating with your eyes open and allowing the imagination to take you where it may. Eriberto allows his creative mind to reflect on his paintings, drawings, photos, cooking and his life.

In this photo, the artist Eriberto Oriol is holding his painting “Hung-over” and his sculpture “La Familia/The Family” is next to him on the wall.

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

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.
