Representing a non-traditional form of love, abstract painting Lesbian Marriage is a manifestation against loneliness and brutality of the world. The combination of dark and light colors symbolizes the unity of body and spirit. Being a playground of visual delights, Lesbian Marriage opens new perspectives for understanding social changes occurring today. Each line of this piece carries a genuine complexity of symbolism which requires its unique code for deciphering and understanding it. Both strong and weak, the depicted lesbians are free daughters of nature. They are simply caught in a game of diversity and multiculturalism and add their divine harmony of meaning and color. Overall, this abstract painting addresses a concept of the same-sex marriage that used to be theoretical in a not-so-distant past. This concept existed in realms of human mind only but soon it passionately burst in the outer reality and changed the world for ever.
Gheorghe Virtosu uses not only pure colors but also the combinations of colors to convey the diversity of feelings and emotions experienced by the just married. As such, Lesbian Marriage touches our emotions in a fresh and powerfully direct way. This artwork rests on the forms that exist in reality but its meaning touches our imagination. This beauty of this abstract painting has long been noticed by both psychologists and artists only (Zhao & Zhu 0-20) but now it became a guideline for the artists on a new generation.
The techniques used by Gheorghe Virtosu – brushing, scraping, splattering, rolling, dripping, or soaking – allows people to understand the deepest nuances of emotions experienced by the participants of this marriage. The piece contains delicate and rough brushstrokes which make the painting look absolutely incredible. A light background and a dark body of the painting add an extra dimension to this artwork. The details of the painting have been carefully penciled to canvas before brushed. This approach contributed the greatness of the painting.
