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.
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 question the role that society plays in defining social roles and the rules it imposes.

“Flowers are Naked” by Eriberto Oriol

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.

“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.
