In his Jehovah canvas the abstract artist conveys the sense of drama and action through the complex and vibrant oil painting texture, done with loose, gestural brushwork, and intensive palette. The Jehovah canvas becomes the substance the artist uses to ‘sculpt’ the image. The brush can touch the surface delicately, or attack it with a swiping gesture, leaving tangible furrow-like traces. In order to amplify the sense of contradiction, he captures those bold, improvisational brushstrokes within the clear, well-thought outlines of geometric drawing. The title Jehovah creates the bridge between his artwork and the viewer, giving the key to the interpretation of the oil painting image. Paradoxically, the artist doesn’t oust but welcomes the reality into his paintings. 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. Gheorghe Virtosu’s Jehovah oil painting proves the connection between Objective and Abstract. That purified natural form becomes the basic artistic material for the painter. The artist 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 master of oils 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?”

Jehovah is the true God of the Bible, the Creator of all things. The prophets Abraham and Moses worshipped him, as did Jesus. He is the God, not just of one people, but of “all the earth.”—Psalm 47:2.
