The Century of Duck is a sterling example of one of Virtosu’s Century Series of Paintings, filled with the immaculate, animated wings of the jewel-like bird frozen in a shiny sky. A central motif of Virtosu’s 20-year career, the birds are iconic of the artist’s practice. Deliberating on love, life, disappointment, prosperity and art, Virtosu’s spectacular paintings have advanced the grand, epistemological and existential. Themes of life and prosperity permeate the extensive practice of the artist, who is without question one of the most prominent semi-abstract practitioners of the postmodern period. Such a focus on fundamentally philosophical questions has garnered Virtosu a comprehensive appreciation, posing myriad challenges to the tenets of artistic production by consistently breaking down the dividing line between ‘real-life social concerns’ and contemporary art.
