Are you ahead of your time?


 

Lisa Lyon was ahead of her time. Back in the day, she was at the forefront in the face of female bodybuilding.

It was said, that she had too many intellectuals try to confine her to bodybuilding, but she was also an artist, a poet, writer, and performance artist.

She was described as the “Michelangelo’s David” but in a female form, but as often happens, there was friction among the peers and she became a “pioneer” footnote. To many, she was and still is a pioneer and ahead of her time because she took bodybuilding to an art form by giving it grace.

In this painting, by artist Eriberto Oriol, Lisa Lyon represents the balance between both male and female which was needed when she was coping with challenges that she faced. She had to use all that was within her to be a pioneer.

For some, artist Eriberto work’s is provoking, disturbing and almost as would be a large window falling, cracking and breaking into pieces. But he knows that in life, sometimes you have to learn to “Dance on a slippery floor.”

When you are in the forefront, you need to use fear and the underworld guardians to energize you. You need to act on instinct, have tenacity, spontaneity, and use the genius of the human spirit to find the treasures and to “Save the prince.”

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.

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.

“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.

Cosmic Creativity?

In his paintings, Eriberto Oriol’s characters are often missing the real structure of what is supposed to be a full body and often all you see are interactions of the shapes, color, and texture.

Eriberto does not want to be pigeonholed in ONE style. It is hard at times to have the unique distinction of being an artist, but Eriberto sees it as a privilege to be able to express the magic of his imagination.

Projecting his emotions through color, line, his work has more of an international flair from inspirations that comes from great art from Asia, Africa, and Mesoamerica.
