CANCER: Stage 4


 

In this artwork, artist Eriberto Oriol captured the intense emotions that I was going through at the time when I found out that I had breast cancer. Nothing prepares one for moments like these.

This was back in August 1994. I kept asking myself questions like, “What did I do to get this cancer? What do I do now? Why me?”

I remembered a therapist saying to me, “Angelica get a hold of yourself, the fear of cancer will kill you sooner than cancer.” I said to myself, “That is easy for her to say.” But she was right.

They say that some of the most powerful works of art emerge from an artist’s darkest moments. In this piece, you can see the strength in Eriberto’s art.

 

 

He was able to capture the intensity of emotions and sheer determination to live in those eyes – all my emotions are on and running!

In much of Eriberto’s work, it is in his characters that seem to reflect haunting moments of human life that resonate the fears and emotions most experience.

His work also shows the strength, tenacity, and integrity of his character as a human being and as an artist.

Where are you going?


 SAME PLACE.

What are you doing?  SAME THING.

What are you eating? SAME THING.

"Caras"

“Caras”

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.

 

It is the same way with his artwork. At times he is somber, sometimes he is playful and sometimes he is contemplative. His art is like his life.  Every day is different – emotionally, physically and health-wise.

 

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.

“What Makes Art Valuable?”


It is the magic and power of the imagination that adds value to art.

“Obscure Identity” by artist Eriberto Oriol

“Obscure Identity” by artist Eriberto Oriol

 

.

The genius of an artist is the one that responds to the sense of wonder and magic of imagination. Even when not knowing where the journey will lead, or what is the meaning of their inspiration.

 

Some feel that being an artist is not a realistic way of life. Eriberto feels that the integrity of life is to follow the wisdom of one’s heart.

 

In his painting “Obscure Identity,” the figure’s face is obscured and she appears to be traveling in space as if on a journey to bring her out the shadows of obscurity. The balance of bold colors and lines gives the figure a certain kind of grace and elegance.

 

Eriberto feels that ART is sometimes seen, as a romantic cult for odd people that reject everyone else’s opinion and are doing what he or she feels is their call.

 

For him, the artwork is the reward for having listened to the inner call of one’s imagination and traveled on a journey to the unknown.   It is this operative link between imagination and the final result that gives value to art.

What is Eriberto Oriol up to NOW? By Angelica


Eriberto is painting.

"Caras y Panochas"

“Caras y Panochas”

 

 

As a photographer, Eriberto has garnished considerable success. Now he is focusing on his painting, drawings and sculpture.

 

His work has more of an international flair as his inspirations come from great art from Asia, Africa and Mesoamerica.

 

It’s hard for Eriberto to try to give meaning or interpretation to his work, as he just seems to be a vessel for these inspirations.
