In this exclusive audio interview Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ talks with artist, dancer and writer C. Huilo C. about his quest to wake-up queer society in his new mythology tale “The Flight of the Jaguar Magician.” Huilo creates a gay mythological folklore in such an enjoyable way it gently reacquaints its readers with their creative and spiritual nature.
When asked what inspired him to take this journey Huilo stated, “I felt dissatisfied as a queer person on earth, that there was nothing that really explained who I was. How it was portrayed in religion or government or on the screen or the arts seemed to me just a sexual thing. Something in me decided that I was much more than that. So I did extensive research and decided that there was a complete legacy to spirit-gay people that wasn’t present in the current modern world. Being that I have been a practicing artist for sometime, I decided to take it upon myself to try and mythologize and weave in some of the old myths that I could find.”
As an artist Huilo enjoys utilizing multimedia artscapes to capture the viewers' wildest imagination and encourage them to activate their sensibility about co-creating the dream of the world. Huilo concluded, “Symbols in art have been central to understanding what cannot be seen and in political cases what cannot be said. With the corporate control of media and economics controlling the art world, I create forms which invite the dreaming consciousness of the viewer to build a new definition of cultural icons and a different way to message the supra-conscious about complex issues that is not otherwise offered to the general public.” Huilo's work has been displayed in North and South America and in Europe.
