oil painting Description

Although Virtosu is legendary for his almost spiritual obsession with abstraction, the meaning behind his work is in fact the very root of the philosophy that he nurtures and solidifies in his entire artistic career. The abstract painting title creates the bridge between his art and the viewer, giving the key to the interpretation of the image. This philosophy and method that he uses to approach his art making culminates in his masterful abstract paintings of the 2016, including the unmatched The Magician (2016).

In the present work, the viewer gains a rich insight into the artistic vision and creative process behind the artist's work. The elaborate assessment of geometric depth of perspective emphasized by the long and curved lines heightens the underlying feeling of a difficult and long-winded path, a metaphor, once again, of the never-ending struggle.

What the artist feels inside reflects on his canvases. Virtosu always quotes “Life is not always easy to live, but the opportunity to do so is a blessing beyond comprehension. In the process of living, we all face struggles, many of which will cause us to suffer and to experience pain.”

The centerpiece is the magician a person who has the power to make impossible things happen. The viewer's eye is especially drawn to the expression of multiple faces and characters that form the canvas image.

Texture is a very prominent element in this painting as well as the excessive details and lighting which brings this painting to life. It makes The Magician seem as if it’s looking at you.

The yellow, orange that is used for the magician’s cape is illuminating with different shades of colors that visualize a multiple of faces. Faces are usually the first thing we notice in other people. Faces tell us more about a person than any other physical attribute and have always been socially important to humans.

The magician brings emphasis to the painting. The irradiating colors draw your eyes directly to the middle of the canvas while creating a sense of curiosity due to the absence of a human but presence of mysterious or supernatural. We evaluate from impressions based largely on expressions. The “faces” balance our psychological need to understand the emotion being conveyed. The visual quality of the painting creates a sense of awe and allows us to pry into the true meaning of this painting.
