In this oil painting the Master of Abstract conveys the sense of drama and action through the complex and vibrant canvas texture, done with gestural, loose brushwork and intensive palette. The Heart Anatomy canvas becomes the substance the artist uses to ‘create’ 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, the artist captures those bold, improvisational brushstrokes within the clear, well-thought outlines of stylish drawing. The oil painting title creates the bridge between the artist's artwork and the viewer, giving the key to the interpretation of the canvas image. The artist doesn’t 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 oil painting proves the connection between Objective and Abstract. That purified natural form becomes the basic artistic material for the artist. The painter 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 creation. 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?”
The human heart is surely a deep, closed, blood-filled pit. When it opens, all the thirsting, inconsolable shades we have loved run to drink and be revived; they grow continually denser around us, blackening the air. Why do they run to drink the blood of our hearts? Because they realize that no other resurrection exists.
