“What Makes Art Valuable?”


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

 

.
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.

Artist Eriberto Oriol
by Angelica

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?

In his paintings, drawings, and sculptures, Eriberto projects his emotions through color, line, and expression with more of an international flare from inspirations that comes from great art from Asia, Africa and Mesoamerica.

Like much of his work, in his drawing “Freaked Out,” it is a juxtaposition of color, line and shapes. The color pink in the background juxtaposed with the dark scribble of his main character, shows how bewildered and out of place this character seems to be.  He is in an urban setting that is almost frightening, as would be a large window cracking and breaking into pieces.
 
He has various styles in his art.  For him, is not about concept; it’s a pause to share feelings about common experiences. His characters are often missing the real structure of what is supposed to be a full body and often all you see are the souls and essence of emotions.  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.
 
The shading in his drawings are not to give the drawings three dimension but it is just there for character and texture.
Born and raised in the United States he sometimes paints from themes that flow from memories, with various painting styles, impressions from his subconscious and experiences.
