German Spirit by Gheorghe Virtosu represents nothing less than the inescapable and incontrovertible apex of the artist’s mature output. This abstract painting assumes the form of a wonderous combination of colors and patterns. When viewing it, one should take in its shear artistic genius and not focus upon interpretations. If interpretation is wanted, this oil painting is the artist’s perception of the German Spirit.
There are four primary colors in this abstract art work. These are white, blue, gold yellow, a dark yellow at the edge of becoming brown and black, not a dark hue of grey but black. At the hinter of the centerpiece, there are whirls. The whirls are primarily in white but at the bottom, three whirls include yellow but are hardly dominating the white. On the left and right edges of the oil painting, a very light blue, with a hardly discernable splatter of black within them. At the topmost whirls, colors have broken in. Some is in an egg shell hue of white, others are a light orange and an equally light blue. The black which partially surrounds the centerpiece, is peaceful as the artist chose to use fine brushstrokes. If one takes the painting all in, the centerpiece seems to be resting upon a cloud.
The painting shows activity, almost as if the colors are creating themselves and immutably linked to one another as they are the creators and the creations. For example, a look at the mid-left of the painting shows the link with the other colors and seem to be emerging out of them. While there is something of a whirl wind at the top right corner of the painting, it is peaceful. The way that the abstract art master used his brush was primarily light and fine. Certainly, while some areas show bolder strokes, the painting is a wonderful exhibition of colors, shapes and originality, all coming together in a way which is peaceful.
