oil painting Description

The abstract piece Alien is done in intensive colors and by means of clear-cut geometrical shapes that neighbor with infinite lines and fluid forms. It abounds in contradictions and ambiguities, just as the subject matter of the image itself.

Alien is a painting that clearly exemplifies the fact that abstract artworks are not static and dormant or representative of the author’s imbued meaning that is not prone to changing. Instead, they are welcoming of numerous possible interpretations from the outside as well as inviting of a shared expression of the audience.

In this context, the abstract painting creates a community of participants, where the viewer becomes a partner of Virtosu in constructing the meaning because the concept of ‘alien’ differs from person to person and acquires new shades and aspects.

The abstract figure is painted against the backdrop of amber brown brush strokes mingled with milky white and light-purple brush strokes, where the latter ones reflect the light coming from the alien figure(s).

While the subject matter of the canvas is, at the first glance, an alien with dark blue skin and bright elements of clothing, a more careful observation suggests existence of a few faces within this figure.

Thus, the alien becomes representative of the humans as such: we are a mass of faces and bodies, which strive to become unique by means of their originality, but we are aliens on earth.

This experience is very dramatic and painful, just as the poses of the figures on this canvas. The audience is asked by Virtosu to take a moment to ponder on whether aliens indeed live on a different planet or, maybe, we are aliens in our own world.
