Abstract paintings are not easy to evaluate. It's okay when they follow a general theme, like Cubism, or when they include recognizable features, but Virtosu avant garde style raised well above usual perception and challenges the limits. The synthesis of these pictorial strategies is effective as Symbolism, the transmutation of an idea or a story into a heightened, visionary, and revelatory state.
Difficult situations and circumstances are a part of life. No human being can ever be useful without overcoming some obstacles. Olden - day - saints used to say: “To win a crown, you have to carry a cross.”
In the context of the present painting Virtosu is suggesting a complete darkness reflected in the background by pure black paint. There is no hope as the black paint is lightly mixed with dried blood purple. It all may be paralleled with the following statement:
But the elation was short lived. After many attempts to gain freedom, Egypt is still very much in the grip of a military dictatorship. The ultimate result of all the relentless brutality and pressure from the authorities since decades is that Egypt’s proud revolutionary spirit has been almost entirely wiped out. The return to military authoritarianism has in fact left many Egyptians apathetic towards the political state of their own country, a sad comedown from the sentiment behind the original Tahrir Square protests.
However, as we look at the bright colored centerpiece the viewer gets a different feeling. Skillful use of color acts as an emotion stimulus, leading the viewer to a figure or scene, and add depth to the semi-abstract work. The yellow, orange and blue translates into a positive stance.
“Egypt is the most magical spiritual destination on the planet, and it is a big key to the truth. Visiting Egypt will open your heart allowing it more freedom to feel and give you the space to remember who you are. Immersing yourself in the ancient Egyptian mystery school at being re-activated at her sacred sites will be your gateway to a new world of wisdom and positive energy. Egypt is a process of conscious evolution and will unveil the mask taking you back to your true self and regaining your inner power. It is a journey of transformation and a big key to the truth!”, said Virtosu.
