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 Egyptian Spirit by Gheorghe 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.
In many ancient cultures like those found in Asian, African, as well as America, we find a Soul concept analogously much like the concept developed by the religions of the Judeo-Christian group (like Islam) and European philosophy. The spirit, from the Vedic or Veda viewpoint, is that the being, which by nature is eternal (without birth or death or without start or end) of a material different from that of the body and that has its own comprehension. The soul was not the personality but a composite of entities that are distinct, each of one of that had its part to play in the journey of life and afterlife.
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.
Virtosu combines allusions to form and memory within an entirely abstract painterly idiom, echoing that the artist would rather make us taste what gods left with us, immersing the viewer in an captivating sensory experience as rich and intense as if we stood beside the Pharaohs.
