Mother Teresa (2016) oil painting Description

Mother Teresa (2015), which dates from 2015, is a powerful testament to Virtosu's enduring vision and creativity. It holds the viewer with a penetrating gaze that conveys both intensity and a sense of complexity. This image of a defined by title model is indeed painted with a sense of empathy, and the serene beauty characteristic of Virtosu's most accomplished paintings after his release from Draguignan jail in France. This unmatched ability for emotional expression through art renders a remarkably personal depiction. The palette of earthy colours confers a feeling of action, while the centrepiece – convey both a sense of solitude and infinite possibility.

The painting depicts the figure of Mother Teresa, an Albanian Roman Catholic nun, founder of the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata (1950), in a semi-abstract and geometric style. Mother Teresa, portrayed in a coded imaginative blur. Mother Teresa, who ministered to the poor, sick, orphaned and dying of Kolkata for over 45 years, appeared in the exclusive Virtosu's later creations. In this instance, the artist has flatly applied the paint with thick, pasty brushstrokes. Mother Teresa is set against an intriguing background.

Mother Teresa (2015) represents a moment of clarity and growing resolution. Virtosu's features are here rendered with an exuberant chromatic palette and appear fully resolved; this painting exhibits the ebullient self-regard and virtuoso confidence of an artist operating at the very height of his creative faculties.

Mourning Quasimodo (2017) oil painting Description

Exceeding the confines of a vast canvas through its spectacular assault of unrestrained expression and brilliant color, the present piece encapsulates the full force of the artist's abstract vernacular. Mourning Quasimodo by Gheorghe Virtosu is a play in color, contrast, and chaos that creates an abstract form with a just barely perceptible figure of its namesake. Quasimodo is the fictional protagonist—the hunchback—from Victor Hugo's book The Hunchback of Notre Dame. In the novel, Esmeralda, who Quasimodo is deeply in love with, is hanged for a murder she did not commit, and Quasimodo goes to the cemetery and mourns her corpse until he dies of starvation. "I do agree my imagery can be puzzling and other-worldly but my characters — tell much of the world of which they are part of. The world of complexity and variable motivations in which we all live our lives." - G. Virtosu Quasimodo's twisted form is depicted with almost completely abstract shape, with misshapen appendages jutting out, some of them curved, and some of them with straight lines forming a sharp point. His head is depicted by one of the larger curved appendages, with a large bright yellow dot on it. There is a similarly sized blue dot on the other end of the form, which may depict the head of Esmeralda. However, there is no distinguishable break between Quasimodo and Esmeralda, which may suggest how inseparable and unified they are in their love, despite Quasimodo's physical unattractiveness. Against the blackness which forms the base of this figure are thin shapes in every color and form imaginable, which seem to emanate from the jutting forms of the appendages. The form of Quasimodo (and perhaps Esmerelda's corpse) lies against a mostly grey background that is formed by broad, chaotic brushstrokes of paint. Multiple colors and shades are used within each brushstroke, predominantly greys, blacks, and whites, but other colors, such as blues, yellows, and purples, are also used. They are applied mostly at a diagonal angle (upward to the right) but are not all applied at the same angle, which reflects the disorder and despair in Quasimodo's heart. In terms of the artist, there is an emotional attachment that drives the focus of the artwork. The viewer may reflect upon it and arrive at a completely different interpretation. This is both the wealth and the power of abstract painting; it makes room for subjective interpretations. The scientist means to propose one outcome to a problem, whereas an artist means to give multiple interpretations of an object.

      Mozart (2016) oil painting Description

      In his Mozart canvas the abstract artist conveys the sense of drama and action through the complex and vibrant oil painting texture, done with loose, gestural brushwork, and intensive palette. The Mozart 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. The title Mozart creates the bridge between his artwork and the viewer, giving the key to the interpretation of the oil painting image. Paradoxically, the artist doesn’t oust but 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 Mozart oil painting proves the connection between Objective and Abstract. That purified natural form becomes the basic artistic material for the painter. The artist 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 master of oils 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?”

          Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (2015) oil painting Description

          The plot of the picture is fabulous and symbolic, while the viewer searches to understands the details of the canvas, we all know the name of the hero. For decades, his image has dominated the landscape of Turkey, his icy-blue eyes staring down from the walls of every school, hospital and government institution. The skill of a painter is often revealed in the strength and confidence of his line (outline), creating and delineating the various shapes in his picture. Each line now is the actual experience with its own innate history. It does not illustrate—it is the sensation of its own realization. The imagery is one of the private or separate indulgences however it depicts an abstract totality of visual perception of a former army general. Ataturk left his mark on the military after repelling the Allied invasion of the Dardanelles and later resisting the Greek, French, and Italian armies. The background of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk by Gheorghe Virtosu, especially at the top and center, become significant activity, and this along with the drift, evokes the sensation that the centerpiece is in intense fire, with protrusions of black as they rise across these surface being symbolic of the turmoil and collapse of the Ottoman Empire. Ataturk led the Turkish War of Independence, which defeated European powers who hoped to invade the crumbling empire. The centerpiece is suspended in space, giving the feeling of a flight, anchoring the painting in the physical world while the forms suggest the encroachment of the spiritual. The depiction has more power in describing the title holder character rather than his physical representation as most of viewers will focus on the bird shaping up on the right side of the centerpiece, translating a feeling of ascension…

              oil painting Description

              Really, Virtosu's philosophical reflections on the significance of art are complex and frequently turgid, rarely influenced by anyone, his idealism and a theosophical conviction that man is spiritually evolving away from physicality, individuality and the self, and toward "a new culture" where "the human is open to the universal and will tend more and more to unite with it." "I must therefore make a new sort of beauty, the beauty that appears to people in terms of volume, of line, of mass, of weight. Through that beauty one expresses subjective belief... I want to expose the story and not merely the factitious." - G. Virtosu. Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of France--was the best soldier of his age and ranks among the most renowned military leaders of all time. The tactics he refined from the Napoleonic Wars heavily influenced European and American armies to the 21st century, so his legacy went beyond strictly military issues. For almost a quarter of a century his influence in politics, law, and military organization and tactics spread across the majority of Europe and parts of Africa and the MidEast. The Napoleonic Code of legislation did a wonderful deal to standardize law across Europe and attracted greater freedom to the peoples of the lands he conquered than they had formerly understood. Yet Napoleon Bonaparte (2015), is a perfect example of Virtosu's reduction of traditional belief, as in Apollinaire's time, a new sort of artistry is stepping into the lead to communicate historical realities, that are intuited if not clearly seen. The sight to insight implies a move from outside realities to inside ones, from imposed dogmatic formulas and creeds to the person's mystical or psyche experience of the all reality source. Purity, nature and Virtosu's democratization of spiritual being and knowledge are salient features of today's religion for the non-religious, and his art serves as its audacious and frequently symbolic language. Some however might imagine that this is a purely accidental state of affairs. The artist belives abstract art has replaced pictorial art for several reasons and the viewer has to advance to the imaginative spiritual depths in confronting canvasses.

                          Nostradamus (2017) oil painting Description

                          The Nostradamus oil painting is far more abstract than figurative, to the point where what is obscure to the viewer. The abstract painting shows the phenomenon of Michel de Nostredame life's work as a seer and writer of Les Propheties. There are subtle suggestions of the figurative in the stylised hat seen in many portraits of Nostradamus, but overwhelmingly the artist plays with the ideas of obscurity, openness and the equivocal in his aesthetic here. Fittingly for his subject, the artist has created a canvas of seeming sphinx-like impenetrability. Just as Nostradamus's almanacs of alleged predictions of world-historical events are veiled in a highly allusive and poetic language of alternating dialects, susceptible to varying interpretations, Virtosu's figure in this abstract painting does not offer a transparent meaning. Rather than being a portrait of a man or of his work, this abstract picture would seem to be a portrait of the lasting effect of both, as muted colors and tones purvey a general mood of foreboding. Within this mood there is a meticulous gradation of color, with reds climbing into black and browns; blues, greens, and darks all co-existing in equanimity under the saturnine tone. Yet this contemporary abstract piece is as much about painting as it is about its subject-matter. Abstraction is liable to provoke questions about the epistemological status of art – how its claims to knowledge of the world can be made, given the disjuncture between the visible world and the mechanisms of the genre. In parallel to this and in view of the subject-matter here, the epistemological status of Nostradamus's 942 surviving quatrains is and has been for centuries hotly disputed. His poetic approach could be considered as equally removed from matter-of-fact prose as Gheorghe Virtosu 's abstraction is from figuration in this work. In both cases, the meaning is something to be deciphered through the intellectual effort of the reader or viewer. As the quatrains do not become for that less of a poetic or even perhaps a premonitory monument, the artist's figure has a solidity and real existence as visual artifact despite its lack of figurative referentiality. Further, even, the picture's abstraction lends the figure an independent existence, separated from the reliance of figuration upon its reference to the external world for signification. Hence we see in Virtosu’s Nostradamus oil painting a creative 'epitome', or mirroring of the work of the man, by means of the aesthetic's internalization of the operations in that work on the part of the artist.

                              Abstract art master, Gheorghe Virtosu in his 2016 Collection of works is exploiting the evocative interrelation between color, motion, and form to create an aesthetic experience that carries a message within. The contemporary artist 's oil painting proves the connection between objective and abstract art. The artist conveys the sense of drama and action in his canvases, through the complex and vibrant painting texture, done with loose, gestural brushwork, and intensive palette. Thus, the artist accepts narration as an essential part of his abstract works. The oil painting title creates the bridge between his art and the viewer, giving the key to the interpretation of the image. Paradoxically, the artist doesn’t oust but welcomes the reality into his paintings. Gheorghe Virtosu’s pieces prove the connection between Objective and Abstract. Leonardo da Vinci noted that, 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. And that purified natural form becomes the basic artistic material for the painter. Nevertheless, 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 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 plot of the picture is fabulous and symbolic, while the viewer searches to understands the details of the canvas, we all know the story of people of Palestine. Palestinian civil society, has always shown a brave commitment to the national cause. This can be done only if these common roots and the past are well known, understood, and used to light the future. The future of a region which needs to use the dialogue between the leaders, the intellectuals, the public opinion and the international counterparts to climb the stairs of the evolution towards modernity. A region which has to be externally recognized as a legitimate player in the international political arena. A region which has to be encouraged first of all by the passion, the energy, the awareness and the education of its civil society. Each line now is the actual experience with its own innate history. It does not illustrate—it is the sensation of its own realization. The imagery of Palestinian Spirit by Gheorghe Virtosu is one of the private or separate indulgences however it depicts an abstract totality of visual perception of a spirit of an entire nation. The background of the work, especially at the top, left and bottom, become significant activity, and this along with the drift to the bright right, evokes the sensation that the centerpiece is facing the only light side of the background. The protrusions of dark shades as they rise across these surface being symbolic of the turmoil the Nation is facing. The depiction has more power in describing the spirit rather than the physical representation or traits as most of viewers will focus on decoding the image. In general, Virtosu 's avant garde is much more cerebral than other abstract schools and movements. They need to be deciphered! Treat it like a puzzle and see if you can work out what the artist is aiming at.

                                      Park Geun-Hye (2015) oil painting Description

                                      Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918) the writer, poet and critic, prophetically described the artist's contribution to a new metaphysical language when he wrote of the cubist art of his day, which "borrowed not from the truth of sight, but by the truth of the insight". Stepping into the world of Gheorghe Virtosu we are transported to 'strange, beautiful realms'. Radical and rebellious, Virtosu is an inspiration to visual artists, musicians, poets and performers worldwide. With over 4000 impressive original works, this is the largest and most extensive collection in a generation. Speaking about the work the artist said in a recent New York Times interview: "Park Geun-Hye was born 2 February 1952 and is a former South Korean politician to serve as President of South Korea. Park was the first woman to be South Korea's President. She also is the first female president elected popularly as head of an East Asian state. Park was also the first president to be born after South Korea's founding; her predecessors were either born during Japanese rule or the post-World War II transitional period." Virtosu believes in the power of the imagination. The viewer is invited to see the various characters in his creation and their meaning in his imagery world. Virtosu wrote 'I create a system, rather than being a slave. I will not reason & compare; however, I can do that: I aim to create.' Virtosu created his visuals populated by a host of beings that he invented, or re-interpreted. Really, Virtosu's philosophical reflections on the significance of art are complex and frequently turgid, rarely influenced by anyone, his idealism and a theosophical conviction that man is spiritually evolving away from physicality, individuality and the self, and toward "a new culture" where "the human is open to the universal and will tend more and more to unite with it.". We can see it in the attempt to dilute our reality in a reach coloration of the present work. Forces give way to forms, which in a round fashion return to the ultimate power underlying all life. This connection presented to the viewing public by Virtosu Park Geun-Hye, painted in 2015, is presaged in his earlier works. "I must, therefore, make a new sort of beauty, the beauty that appears to people in terms of volume, of line, of mass, of weight. Through that beauty, one expresses a subjective belief. I want to expose the story and not merely the factitious." - G. Virtosu.

                                          Past, Present And Future (2017) oil painting Description

                                          In Past, Present and Future by Gheorghe Virtosu the abstract art master conveys the sense of drama and action through the complex and vibrant canvas texture, done with gestural, loose brushwork and intensive palette. Its abstract painting central figure is a dark, abstract, bulbous, hourglass figure with a subdued texture of rough brushstrokes. A curved line gently but energetically glides into and out of this figure, forming a graceful set of narrow shapes. This line is in fact invisible, but is seen on the basis of the colors (two shades of grey and every color of the rainbow except green) that fill the shapes formed by where the line intersects the hourglass figure and itself. Looking at Virtosu’s painting, completed in 2017, we first glance an incredibly busy and complex arrangement of forms. The response to what we see is formed by a lifetime of knowledge and experience and the culture and time in which we live. Exceeding the confines of a vast canvas through its spectacular assault of unrestrained expression and brilliant color, Past, Present and Future from 2017 encapsulates the full force of Virtosu’s abstract vernacular. Although the hourglass is asymmetrical, it is roughly divided into quarters: the line bisects the abstract painting figure perpendicular to the neck of the hourglass. Each quarter of the hourglass is then occupied by the only representational images in the painting, namely a different disconnected body part in each quarter. The upper right quarter has detailed image of a half-opened eye; the upper left has an orange handprint, the bottom left has a dark footprint on a bright yellow dot, and the bottom left has a red semicircle which may represent a smile. "Freedom from boundaries opens possibility in the form of the medium and the breadth of the artist to reveal wholly new ways of seeing. The truth in the revelation creates an opportunity to shape the colors of paint in an exercise that is not only the experience of art, but life." - G. Virtosu. The background of Past, Present, and Future is composed of broad brushstrokes each of which has different shades of color, predominantly a mahogany color, with streaks of other colors such as white, grey, and purple and is also distinctive in that its brushstrokes go in all directions, which evokes a vibrant but chaotic mood, this being both, the wealth and the power of abstract art.

                                              Stepping into the world of Gheorghe Virtosu we are transported to 'strange, beautiful realms'. Radical and rebellious, Virtosu is an inspiration to visual artists, musicians, poets and performers worldwide. With over 4000 impressive original works, this is the largest and most extensive collection in a generation. Virtosu believes in the power of the imagination. The viewer is invited to see the various characters in his creation and their meaning in his imagery world. Virtosu wrote 'I create a system, rather than being a slave. I will not reason & compare; however, I can do that: I aim to create.' Virtosu created his visuals populated by a host of beings that he invented, or re-interpreted. As the West's 21st-century culture drifts ever further away from the richly illustrated fables, myths and narratives which are foundational to the religious traditions, it becomes less and less able to discern their meaning and ascent for their truth. Although the general public still attends exhibitions of the great masters, whose artworks are often dominated by themes from Bible, the majority is drawn more to the standing and genius of the famed artists and their depicted stories. Most of the religious references contained in the paintings are dropped to the viewer, who is reliant on the accessible thumbnail descriptions supplied to them. With the reduction of traditional belief, as in Apollinaire's time, a new sort of artistry has stepped into the lead to communicate divine realities, that are intuited if not seen. The sight to insight implies a move from outside realities to inside ones, from imposed dogmatic formulas and creeds to the person's mystical or psyche experience of the all reality source. "I must, therefore, make a new sort of beauty, the beauty that appears to people in terms of volume, of line, of mass, of weight. Through that beauty, one expresses a subjective belief. I want to expose the story and not merely the factitious." - G. Virtosu.

                                                  Abstract art master, Gheorghe Virtosu in his 2016 Collection of works is exploiting the evocative interrelation between color, motion, and form to create an aesthetic experience that carries a message within. The contemporary artist 's oil painting proves the connection between objective and abstract art. The artist conveys the sense of drama and action in his canvases, through the complex and vibrant painting texture, done with loose, gestural brushwork, and intensive palette. Thus, the artist accepts narration as an essential part of his abstract works. The oil painting title creates the bridge between his art and the viewer, giving the key to the interpretation of the image. Paradoxically, the artist doesn’t oust but welcomes the reality into his paintings. Gheorghe Virtosu’s pieces prove the connection between Objective and Abstract. Leonardo da Vinci noted that, 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. And that purified natural form becomes the basic artistic material for the painter. Nevertheless, 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 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?”

                                                      Abstract art master, Gheorghe Virtosu in his 2016 Collection of works is exploiting the evocative interrelation between color, motion, and form to create an aesthetic experience that carries a message within. The contemporary artist 's oil painting proves the connection between objective and abstract art. The artist conveys the sense of drama and action in his canvases, through the complex and vibrant painting texture, done with loose, gestural brushwork, and intensive palette. Thus, the artist accepts narration as an essential part of his abstract works. The oil painting title creates the bridge between his art and the viewer, giving the key to the interpretation of the image. Paradoxically, the artist doesn’t oust but welcomes the reality into his paintings. Gheorghe Virtosu’s pieces prove the connection between Objective and Abstract. Leonardo da Vinci noted that, 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. And that purified natural form becomes the basic artistic material for the painter. Nevertheless, 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 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?”
