Central concern of humanity

Abstract Art Theme - Existence origin and civilizations

All cultures have a creation story of how everything came from nothing. From Creation Myths to the Big Bang, there are only a small number of credible answers. All creation myths are about the existence of some kind of divine or abstract power capable of creating the world. In the vast majority of cases, this abstract power is embodied in God. In others, the Universe has existed forever and will exist forever. In others still, the cosmos emerges from Nothing.

The origin of our existence has always been a central concern for humanity; the origin of the earth, the animals, the plants, the stars, and the most fundamental the origin of them all, the origin of the universe as a whole.

Underlying the abstract painting series is an exploration of the creative imagination that humanity expresses its most essential self and looks for the fundamental meaning of life. Gheorghe Virtosu adds additional commentary and context to this creative exploration by creating the abstract painting - The source of life, Revolutionary Ideology, Prosperity, Master of the Waters.

The theme is an awe-inspiring, gorgeously conceived examination of how humans are intimately connected through time, space and culture. In a time when we often seem distant from each other, the works are an inspiring reminder that we share deeper emotional, cultural and spiritual bonds that we often do not realize.
