oil painting Description

The artist conveys the sense of drama and action through the complex and vibrant painting texture, done with loose, gestural brushwork, and intensive palette with the predominant yellow, brown colors. The Joan of Arc oil painting 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.

Gheorghe Virtosu 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 abstract 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?”

You say that you are my judge; I do not know if you are; but take good heed not to judge me ill, because you would put yourself in great peril.
