Central concern of humanity
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 artist acclaimed the theme landmark with a series of artworks, this bold new series of abstract paintings broadens the canvas to reveal the role of philosophy and the creative imagination across multiple cultures and civilizations, introducing a new generation to works of beauty, ingenuity and illumination created across continents. From the landscape scrolls of classical abstract painting Adam & Eve to Alien and Atomic Era paintings, and the Connection of Civilizations that explores the wealth of treasures created through the entirety of the human experience.
52 abstract paintings, forming the theme travels the globe, visiting landmarks as the Baptism of Jesus, the Buddha in meditation, the Hindu God Lord Shiva, Theotokos and Babylonian Human. The theme explores a sweeping range of topics, including the character and spirit in art.
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.
