oil painting Description

In Baroness, one can notice multifarious creatures, which constitute a single unity. In fact, if to look closely at the picture, a viewer can see a number of small circles and ovals, which resemble the eyes of fish, crabs, and monsters. The blue background suggests that the animals swim in the sea. In fact, the creatures, which overlay each other, seem to be partially submerged in the sea, as some of their parts appear to be invisible and covered with water.

For the Baroness art work or the subject matter, Gheorghe Virtosu applies primarily dull tinges of warm colors, which arepredominately red, orange, and yellow. Apart from this, there are cool blue and pink hues, along with neutral the black and white ones, but they are rather scarce. The lines are prevalently bold, which distinguishes the subject matter from the background and adds a shape to the figures. At times, the artist paints round shapes, but generally the abstract art piece has angular contours, which adds harshness to the painting. Overall, the abstract painting is balanced, since both sides of the picture are symmetrical.

The title of the abstract painting suggests that it is dedicated to either a real or fictional baroness. It is hard to discern a woman’s silhouette in the artwork that chiefly contains sea creatures, unless you take time to analyze the figure from diverse angles. Or maybe, the artist have delineated a baroness’s inner world, referring to the symbolic meanings of sea inhabitants. Indeed, in many cultures, fish is considered a symbol of wisdom and femininity, whereas a crab is the embodiment of shyness and perseverance (“Crab Animal,” “Fish Animal”). On the other hand, the horrible faces of monsters may stand for the dark side of the woman’s soul.
