Abstract art master, Gheorghe Virtosu in his 2016 Collection of works is exploiting the evocative interrelation between color, motion, and form to create an aesthetic experience that carries a message within. The contemporary artist 's oil painting proves the connection between objective and abstract art. The artist conveys the sense of drama and action in his canvases, through the complex and vibrant painting texture, done with loose, gestural brushwork, and intensive palette. Thus, the artist accepts narration as an essential part of his abstract works. The oil painting title creates the bridge between his art and the viewer, giving the key to the interpretation of the image. Paradoxically, the artist doesn’t oust but welcomes the reality into his paintings.

Gheorghe Virtosu’s pieces prove the connection between Objective and Abstract. Leonardo da Vinci noted that, if our vision can grasp landscapes and faces in the accident blots, the same way it can ‘deconstruct,’ eliminate the integrity of an object’s image. And that purified natural form becomes the basic artistic material for the painter. Nevertheless, Gheorghe Virtosu doesn’t copy the natural forms but rather follows their dynamics and movement: sudden twists of the line, compositional pauses, coloristic bursts are consonant with the natural processes of birth, growth and decay. The artist blurs the borders between ‘narrative’ and ‘non-narrative art,’ asking us “What is the reality, if not one of the most abstract things in the world?”
