The synthesis of this unique pictorial strategy is effective both as decoration, in the manner of Virtosu only, and as Symbolism, the transmutation of an idea or message into a heightened, visionary, and revelatory state.

Virtosu’s use of blue, red and yellow, blended to create an intermediate three dimensional tonalities, is Symbolist in effect, contrasting the artist’s natural motifs against an environment that has been subjectively conceived, in the expression of an enriched psyche, otherworldly state of mind that the artist wished to communicate to the viewer.

This painting is an insight into what makes a great work of art.
