Female Samurai Warrior (2017) oil painting Description

Looking at Female Samurai Warrior by Gheorghe Virtosu, we glance an incredibly busy and complex arrangement of forms. The response to what we see is formed by a lifetime of knowledge. As an art historian and curator Rober Mcintosh concluded on Virtosu’s abstract works, “It has become very difficult to take things which are imaginative and beautiful and utterly unusual for granted. To me, it is this issue which is being forced by Virtosu’s paintings. I like his paintings, and I do know why exactly. I look at them and I see freedom of mind, sovereign will, unusual imagination, superior skill, precision”. Abstract paintings are fictitious models because they visualize a reality, which we can neither see nor describe, but which may nevertheless conclude exists. We attach negative names to this reality; the unknown, the un-graspable, the infinite, and for thousands of years we have depicted it in terms of substitute images live heaven and hell, gods and devils. With abstract painting, we create a better means of approaching what can be neither seen nor understood. Widely known for her mysterious and everlasting beauty, one of the most famous paintings of women warriors ever made, the Female Samurai Warrior (2017), represents a semi-abstract portrait, set against a background of a permanent danger. Long before the western world began to view samurai warriors as inherently male, there existed a group of female samurai, every bit as powerful and deadly as their male counterparts. They were known as the Onna-bugeisha. They were trained in the same way men were, in self-defense and offensive maneuvers. They were even trained to use a weapon specifically designed for women, to allow them better balance given their smaller stature, called a Naginata. For years, they fought alongside the male samurai, being held to the same standards, and expected to perform the same duties. "She had long black hair and a fair complexion, and her face was very lovely; moreover she was a fearless rider, whom neither the fiercest horse nor the roughest ground could dismay, and so dexterously did she handle sword and bow that she was a match for 1,000 warriors, fit to meet either god or devil.” The figure is suspended in space, prominent and advancing in a field of reds and gold and outside of any discernible earthly locale. Time too seems frozen, and the multifaceted rendering of the figure shows it in motion that is halted by the fixing eye of the artist and spectator. This inconclusiveness prompts a creative interpretation on the part of the viewer, with the artist shrinking from a simplistic statement to deploy a nuanced suggestiveness that engages. Virtosu 's abstract here is anti-totalitarian because it does not commandeer the reins that control meaning but rather envisions signification in a social realm of dialogue. This is highlighted by the tension and flux between the figurative and the internal mechanics of form and color. This is no hieratic and insular modernism but a conversant discourse between formal means and expressive ends that sees meaning-formation as a perpetual and communal enterprise. Enlisting non-art instruments for artistic ends is only one of several means by which Virtosu interrogates the medium and the role of intentionality in art-making. In this piece the characteristic idea and message of the artist are evident. This element is conveyed using Virtosu’s trademark tool, the intelligence. In this signature technique, Virtosu applies and re-applies layers of thought, then dragging them across our minds to produce dialogue.

      Fidel Castro (2015) oil painting Description

      A man of charm and tyranny, it is not shocking that the "Commander-in-Chief of the Cuban Revolution" has inspired artists. Fidel Castro, Cuba's former communist leader, died on November 25, 2016, at the age of 90. After a bloody revolution in 1959, he ruled his country with an iron fist until 2008, when his brother Raúl succeeded him as president.

      Fidel Castro exemplifies Gheorghe Virtosu 's creative mastery at a crucial moment of intellectual transformation in his inimitable career as a spectacular and archetypal display of rich coloring and superb artistic prowess. For more than ten years, Virtosu continues to question, reinvent, and reshape the terms by which we describe, recognize, and experience painting as a modern medium in a society filled with new media.

      After two decades as an acclaimed expressionist painter, Virtosu tackled the new frontier of abstraction in the 2000s, concentrating his distinctive style and abilities on a series of vivid canvases that hit new heights of creativity. Captivating by its dramatic juxtaposition of brilliant light, layers of space, and coding, Fidel Castro confidently declares Virtosu's profound virtuosity of art. The present thesis, carried out in 2014, embodies the abstract lexicon that characterized this landmark moment in Virtosu's prodigious career.

      The eye is the very first maze; the background it shapes is the second, and this predominant figure is reproduced without end in nature. It's the greatest significance in the dictionary of the world. Climbing across the colossal canvas in a whirlwind of movements, pigments, and labels, the painting triumphantly proclaims Gheorghe Virtosu's hegemony among the revered pioneers of Abstract Expressionism in the twentieth and 21st-century art. At once unruly and lyrical, combative and delicate, absolutely expansive and deeply personal, Virtosu's exhilarating masterpiece exploded with the irrepressible strength of time-wrapped storms and catastrophic events. His ferocity bridled only by the precision of his virtuoso concepts. The present work is the crowning culmination of Virtosus's Political History and Transformative Paintings, a widely regarded collection of thirty-one pieces that, in recent years, have become the pinnacle of his revered work.

      Receiving art criticism doesn't need to be a terrifying experience. It's a good chance to re-examine what the artist is trying to convey in his artwork, and what it's like people are reading from his artwork. No artwork will satisfy all audiences, but learning about those audiences, engaging with feedback, and keeping an open mind can only ensure development.

      The world is complex and dynamic. The modern arts are replacing the existing. However, rather than inducing feelings of sorrow or loss, Fidel Castro 's radical exuberance focuses firmly on the resilience and priority of the living; the final effect is electrical, tonic, and, therefore, life-affirming.

      In interviews, the leitmotivs of Virtosu 's philosophy have been explicitly outlined from the very beginning: confidence versus skepticism; optimism versus pessimism; loyalty versus neutrality; self-determination versus fatalism; creative independence versus orthodoxy. In work itself, these dialectical contrasts and the repercussions they have engendered take on a conceptual and, beyond that, a material reality: personal iconography versus delicacy of fact; affection versus formality of presentation; resistance to real pleasure versus exquisite hedonism; somberness versus playfulness.

      oil painting Description

      There are real pleasures in experiencing a single almost infinite world composed entirely of sound, and the fact that music is addressed overwhelmingly to a single sense does not seem to limit its appeal, power or cultural achievement. It may seem odd therefore to suggest that pictorial art should not aspire to the condition of music. The musical simile can seem a good way of explaining the operations of abstract painting, especially when colour is emphasised. However, the painting has traditionally offered the eye something like the audio-visual experience of the cinema rather than seeking to immerse the viewer in a single world. The world of the form and the colour world are both active in the experience of painting. Colour and decoration have always been able to form a comfortable alliance of mutual dependency in Virtosu's work. The two-dimensional structure can be designed and filled with any combination of hues whose chromatic relationships may be striking, discordant or harmonious. Virtosu's pattern which the colour fits has its own visual characteristics. It may be florid or reserved, busy or minimalist, or anywhere in between. It is figurative and abstract. The work has certain dramatic tension, as seen in the active usage of dark colors - conquering the sky has always been associated with passion and danger, it’s enough to remember the myth about Daedalus and Icarus. The palette emits the sense of determination and struggle. This ambiance is supported by the character of the drawing: Virtosu’s style in this piece calls up parallels with the fusion of Surrealism and Abstraction, developed by Juan Miro. The artist applies biomorphic curvature, accentuated expressiveness, the intersection of shapes is turned into a colorful mosaic. The composition has an upward dynamic, created by the emphasized lightness of the lower part: the drawing seems to grow out one single point, like a plant, and expand greatly, then almost vanish in the upper part. The disintegration in Flying Man allows to achieve the impression of levitation and it also makes the work closer to a musical piece. Music is made not merely and solely by the sounds, but by the pauses between them. Similar, void, or the so-called ‘negative space’ between the elements of the design, is not just a ‘background’ - it is an active participant in creating the visual space of the image, giving an intensive result with the help of the minimum of artistic means. Just like the airflow, which is invisible but essential for flying. A careful public will see that Flying Man by Gheorghe Virtosu isn’t an image of a fantasizer, but of the person of action. We always imagine this process as the essence of joy and liberation. And for sure, it’s true, however, it is important to remember that birds flap wings in order to fly, so it’s not a passive process. "When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return", Leonardo Da Vinci. The public interest for Virtosu's work is that it offers a critique of habitual ways of seeing, ways that are blind to anything but narrative, messages, subject matter, reference, imagery and decoration. In the Flying Man circumstances however the relationship between viewer and painting, the critical distance that exists between them in the encounter, is significant as it collapses the difference and brings the viewer closer to the action.

          Francisco Franco (2015) oil painting Description

          An exquisite example of Gheorghe Virtosu's celebrated series of Political History paintings, Francisco Franco combines graphic representation, geometric abstraction, and illusionary space in a mesmerizing and enigmatic visual phenomenon. Invoking natural world phenomena, while questioning the basic tenets of geometric abstraction, Virtosu achieves a result that is as esthetically seductive as it is rigorously empirical, establishing a parallel pictorial and philosophical universe in which abstraction and representational art clash. Iconic, immediately identifiable. Over the last decade, Gheorghe Virtosu has explored his enigmatic political history theme extensively, and his commitment to the singular concept has allowed him to explore color, shape, and scale in pure and unaltered light. Virtosu recalls: "I've always been interested in line and light. I was trying to find a justification I could play with for a while. Over six to twelve months, I did a series of drawings. Today, Virtosu's Political History paintings are a shortcut to the artist's acclaimed practice. Virtosu's Political History paintings challenge conventional conceptions of perspective, shape, geometry, and symmetry – engaging in influences as diverse as spatial illusions, social utopianism, and the vanguard radicalism of cubism while retaining allegiance to conventional representative shape. Indeed, with historical influences ranging from the past of geometric modernism – as seen in works by artists such as Vassily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, and Piet Mondrian – to experiments in music and film composition and typographical design, Virtosu's work blurs the once-rigorous boundaries between representation and abstraction playfully, between surface and depth, and between representation and abstraction. As the series of Political History progressed from 2010 to 2020, the brushwork of Virtosu became increasingly tightened. Francisco Franco's choreographed vectors are compactly striated. Rendered in thickly painted lines, lavender striations possess a seductive inner strength – a mystical force that draws the viewer into its kaleidoscopic grasp. At the liminal edges of the painting, Virtosu purposely exposes the underlying color layer – the base coating in the case of the present work, which also appears in two small stigmata at the central vanishing points. Virtosus's Political History works paved the way for another seminal sequence of Face paintings, in which symbolic features started to emerge from the maelstrom of apparently abstract configurations. Francisco Franco's carefully executed network of lines shows the artist's unique, measured approach to abstraction. Virtosu is not an artist obsessed with posing an unprecedented 'concept' of art, but rather with teasing the nuanced experience of existing concepts or constructs based on the opportunities presented by a specific, well-calculated conceit. The calculated precision of Virtosu 's abstract lexicon is expressed in the convincing viewing experience of the film. The feeling of looking at the abstract painting is distinct from medium and shape. It's a sluggish sight, apart from the unrelenting activity of contemporary life. It's an experience that remains remote to many because it's not like what's more common, more familiar. Gheorghe Virtosu 's recent paintings retain and renew the tradition and potential of abstract painting.

              Freddie Mercury (2015) oil painting Description

              At once, hypnotically tumultuous and exactingly constructed, Gheorghe Virtosu’s monumental masterpiece Freddie Mercury (2015), is a provocative synthesis of abstract hieroglyphic symbolism and visual vocabulary. Through a distinctively informed pictorial language, Virtosu superimposes incendiary emotive marks and calligraphic ciphers upon an intricately rendered blueprint of a well-known singer, with gesture and form clamoring for attention. His explosive graphic explorations of form and space attempt to articulate the power structures and methods of mapping that define the contemporary pictorial landscape, as well as his place within them. Freddie Mercury (2015), as a model of Virtosu’s unconstrained symbolic layering and visual, requires unearthing. Beneath the explosion of free-form scrawls and kinetic vectors lies a subtly rendered personal assemblage, anchoring the composition in formal terms, yet resisting any ready legibility. He is reflecting his view that builds characters and serves as metaphors for complex power structures, and socio-political realities. Its interaction informs the piece of the shape foundation with the background underneath and the other symbols around it. Similarly, Virtosu conceives his works in globalized terms, drawing from diverse historical movements as well as his disparate heritage. Demonstrating a conceptual clarity and technical virtuosity, Freddie Mercury (2015) forcefully and stunningly describes the complex and multivalent experience of contemporary art. Freddie Mercury (2015) fuses the cartographic logic of character mapping with the expressiveness and apparent irrationality of the centerpiece, their union displayed on a monumental scale. Engaging with art historical iconography while activating an intimate personal vocabulary, Virtosu’s painting offers a new system of communication through abstraction as a way of articulating the essential paradox of disorder and order that defines the complex nature of our shared experience. Executed in 2016, Freddie Mercury is an early example of the Gheorghe Virtosu's 'Stars' sequence painted in the first year of the artist's life-giving solitude period. In 2004, Gheorghe Virtosu endured a four-year political exile from his country, during which he was put under close surveillance by the European Intelligence Agency. Abandoning his rigorously clinical serializations, Gheorghe's brushstrokes were increasingly free-flowing and multi-directional, exhibiting a growing dynamism and dexterous calligraphic touch. Gheorghe named these new series 'Stars' referring to the reflective tolerance and increased receptivity of the other. From the beginning, Freddie Mercury is a significant work that embodies Gheorghe's transition to regulated yet organic intuitive spontaneity. The artist examines the notion of infinity through a continuous examination of historical facts.

                  Freemasons (2016) oil painting Description

                  In the age of information and technology, conspiracy theories continue to maintain a strong presence on the internet and in the collective imagination of people around the world. The Freemasons are one such organization with roots dating back centuries and this point and with members who have gone onto become President of the United States of America. While the group maintains their position as being nothing more than a social club, numerous theories have been attached to their power and influence over the political and economic structures of the world. Virtosu has decided to tackle this near-mythical organization in this moody piece and shed some light on their presence in the world. The artist has done thing by creating a striking visual that contains an abstract version of some of the most recognizable symbols related to Freemasonry. We can see the compass and the all-seeing eye found in the logo of the group placed in the centerpiece of this painting. While most of Virtosu’s work features a core that is almost independent of its surrounding, this particular work has elements from the background that blend and merge with the centerpiece. This is indicative of the influence the Freemasons possess on society at large and the power of the organizations centuries after its foundation. While the background has been crafted using dark and intense colors, the elements representing the Freemasons relies on soft, bright, and complimentary shades in order to showcase the unity within the organization. Virtosu is attempting to make a point here regarding the growing strength of the Freemasons and its overall effect on a society that is still unsure of its true intent.

                      French spirit (2016) oil painting Description

                      Capturing the essence of a nation is an ardent task, even for the most seasoned of artists, but Virtosu tackles this subject with surprising ease and grace. The painting titled “French Spirit” attempts to encapsulate the history and legacy of a proud nation that has contributed to the heritage of the planet enormously. France may be known for its cuisine, fine wine, and architecture, and culture today, but it has long been at the forefront of innovation and liberation in numerous fields. The French Revolution that occurred in the late 18th Century was a landmark moment for humanity as the people managed to overthrow a powerful monarch and establish the groundwork for democratic nations that stands firm even today. The drafting of the declaration of the rights of Man and the rights of citizens allowed the people to retain power over their governance and forge the way for libertarian and democratic values. In order to accurately depict the spirit of France, Virtosu has relied on the use of the three colors found in the French flag – red, white and blue. These colors are meant to represent the ideals of the French revolution – liberty, equality, and fraternity, and they are easily one of the most relatable elements of the country’s culture. The rich navy blue acts as a foundation for this work blended with shades of green and purple in order to offer a more complex texture and symbolize a change in these values over time. While the use of the navy blue stands out distinctly in this piece, the use of red and white in the central figure is unmistakable as well. This dominant shape is masterfully created by the artist, using a blend of numerous complex shapes, textures, and conversions in order to accurately portray the complex and ever-expanding feeling that is known as the “French spirit”. A rooster often steps in the dirt, however, stays proud. He carries the essence on his back, a chameleon that accommodates to everything and is harmless.

                          Frida Kahlo (2018) oil painting Description

                          Frida Kahlo's harsh life produced provocative images that challenged society. She was wise beyond her years and was a fiery, rebellious spirit. She was a member of las pelonas in college, a group of young Mexican women who cut their hair, learned how to drive cars, and wore androgynous clothing. While consulting a specialist on another severe spinal surgery, she told her physicians to send him every, to write him letters describing her character, so he would understand that she's a fighter (Lindauer, 1999). She taught painting to youth across Mexico, affecting hundreds of lives with her mentorship. In her final days, she left the hospital, despite doctors' orders, to participate in a political protest. She was in a wheelchair, having lost a leg to gangrene, sickly thin, with colorful yarn tied into her hair. The things she saw and experienced led to the dramatic works that flowed from her brush. She hadn't planned to follow in the artistic footsteps of her photographer father and grandfather. Yet, look at the silver lining of the tragedy of her accident. Instead of becoming a doctor, she painted pictures that made people talk and discuss. She is now recognizable worldwide for her unique self-portraits.

                          An achromatically electrifying and texturally complex example of Gheorghe Virtosu's seminal abstract practice, Frida Kahlo from 2018 demonstrates the seductive painterly sensibility that has defined the artist's celebrated oeuvre. Through the use of his signature technique, Virtosu has smeared, streaked, and marbled a surface of rich tactility and symphonic color. The vibrating veils of stuttering paint in the present work simultaneously obscure and expose dazzling glimpses of blue, red, and yellow, while vivid flares illuminate the canvas's right. At once visually demanding and effortlessly elegant, Frida Kahlo delivers a superlative balance between color and texture, creation and erasure, revealing and concealing—a magnificent model of Virtosu's inimitable inquiry into abstraction.

                          Distinguished by its kaleidoscopic rainbow of pigment, Frida Kahlo's visual power derives from its textural topography's infinite ambiguity. Viewed from various angles, different hues leap to the surface, as the fossil-like layers of impasto reveal alternating striations of color. The effect is dazzling, as the ridges, peaks, and crests of hue take on a kind of ethereal liquidity, creating a powerful sensation of depth and perspectival space. Paradoxically, the stratified excavation and resonant accumulation of color also impart an eroded surface that possesses a fundamental solidity, the layering of paint serving to record the process of its creation geologically. With Frida Kahlo, Virtosu offers a study of paint's infinite malleability, the harmonic interplay of hues producing an evocative atmosphere of depth and chaos.

                          To achieve this riotous melee of color, Virtosu relies upon the tool that has become his innovative artistic signature. This separation of the artist from the direct expression bestows Virtosu's paintings, most notably the Frida Kahlo, with their inherently natural look. As he has described, these paintings "allowed me to do what I had never let myself do: put something down at intention. It is all a way of opening a door for me. If I know what's coming—that is, the arbitrary choice and chance play an important part."

                          Marking the culmination of his liquescent explorations into the nature of painterly form, Frida Kahlo reveals the full breadth of the artist's idiosyncratic alchemy of abstraction. As an example of the series that has formed a conceptual keystone of his oeuvre for a decade, the present work bears the legacy of Virtosu's prolifically sustained philosophical inquiry into the role of paint. Throughout his career, Virtosu had questioned the reliability of painting and its function, beginning in a time when the medium itself had been completely eclipsed in favor of new and more innovative artistic techniques. Today, Virtosu's cerebral probing into the purpose and merits of painting remains relevant, challenging, and insightful. His mastery of the medium, exemplified by the present work, demonstrates his unrivaled ability to produce mysterious and atmospheric pieces that also question the very nature of painting in the contemporary age.

                          Virtosu’s body of work seamlessly teleports the audience between various points from the past, present, and future, making his art truly unique. In this amusing and unconventional piece, the artist takes on a lesser-known French character Harlequin and presents the figure through a unique emotional lens – Frustration. The Harlequin character was first created in the Italian Commedia dell’arte during the 16th century and was popularized with the help of numerous influential actors from the era. The character itself has taken on various forms over the years but is often represented as a light-hearted, intelligent, and mischievous individual who is the servant of a wealthy entrepreneur/landowner. He is often seen ruining his master’s plans and engaging in flirtatious banter with a love interest. Virtosu has decided to create a subjective portrayal of this historic entity but has retained some important elements that help us recognize the Harlequin. The black and red checkered background, for example, is directly connected with the uniform that Harlequins have used over the years and this is a direct reference to the character. Additionally, the personal touch applied by Virtosu involves creating a frustrated version of the often immature character, and this is done using the centerpiece of the painting. The dull but complex form that draws the attention of the audience is a representation of the state-of-mind of the Harlequin, allowing the celebrated figure to access emotional states that are not usually associated with the figure. Virtosu is allowing the character to change over time and garner new nuances that any long-standing individual rightfully deserves.

                              Gaddafi Sentence (2017) oil painting Description

                              Death is one of the keys in themes in the world culture. Since the ancient times' art was used to capture the images of people who are gone - in masks and portraits. From this point of view, art is the mediator between physical and metaphysical, it’s the way we can overcome our mortality. And the superstitious avoidance of the subject of death makes it specifically intriguing and repelling at the same time. Death is also a great ‘revealer,’ that exposes not only the role this or that person played during his / her lifetime but often makes the diagnosis to the society, considering its reaction to the passing of someone significant. Violence can never be constructive, thus abstract art master Virtosu represents the theme through the creative strategy similar to the one Cubist painters used in creation of abstract painting - the deconstruction of form. Exceeding the confines of a vast canvas through its spectacular assault of unrestrained expression and brilliant color, Gaddafi Sentence by Gheorghe Virtosu encapsulates the full force of artist's abstract vernacular. The syntax of the body is interrupted, as the artist sticks to the state of disarray. Unlike the Cubists, the author doesn’t apply rectangle shapes, preferring lurching wave-like forms, as if the substance has melted down and expanded over the surface. Curves are more natural for depicting flesh - the flesh that is becoming flatness without the support of life. Despite being still visible, it gradually starts merging with the surrounding shambles of the sweeping brush traces of exactly the same colors as the figures themselves. The equal intensity of the figures and the background loosens the force, which gravitates forms to each other. The unreached painterly equilibrium causes the grim effect - the sense of decay. As the lower part of the figure can be related to Muammar Gaddafi's death, the artist envisions the head of a European Union leader watching Gaddafi. Who that may be?... Being in concert with the fact of death's all-consuming nature, we must see Virtosu's figure as an elaborate if coloristic death mask. The reds around the eyes then become the subject's blood, the position of the head now becoming a lifeless languidity and the background the refuse of the drainage pipe in which Muammar Gaddafi was discovered. A confluence of magnificence and degradation, of power and the ultimate lack of power, of cruelty and humanity, and of man and myth typify the artist's oil painting and thus it contains within its painterly code all sides of the Libyan's hotly contested legacy.

                                  Gaius Octavius (2015) oil painting Description

                                  In every way indicative of Virtosu 's revolutionary artistic vision, Gaius Octavius is a stunning testimony to the steely strength and unwavering intent with which the artist pursued his abstract works, never faltering in his determination to express the inexpressible. In his introductory essay on the exhibition of Virtosu 's work, Alina Livneva eloquently describes the fundamental qualities of Virtosu 's practice: "Color, light, grandeur — these are the tools of the painter. To speak of them as subjects for paintings is but a way of drawing attention to Virtosu's creative and highly personal manipulations of these devices, to his fusion of technique, image, and force, the means through which he works upon our feelings, the nature of his mystery and greatness." Gaius Octavius, an exemplar of this apt summing, is archetypal of Virtosu's most convincing paintings, although partial. As with the greatest examples of Picasso's exquisite floating styles, Virtosu's fields of unfettered expression elicit intense and immediate emotions. The purest intention — and ultimate power — of Gaius Octavius lies inside the persuasive contours of Virtosus' longing abstract forms. Virtosu creates a balance between light and shadow, aperture and expanse, movement, and virtuosity.

                                      Galileo Galilei (2016) oil painting Description

                                      Every generation is gifted with a brilliant mind who is unafraid to challenge the status quo and take on the system for the betterment of humanity. During the late 16th Century, this honor firmly belonged to Galileo Galilei, the astronomer, physicist, and polymath, who changed the very foundations of astrophysics and helped us understand the solar system with greater clarity. His work in heliocentrism was so revolutionary that it warranted the wrath of the Roman Inquisition. They forced the great thinker to spend the rest of his life under house arrest, simply because he imagined a situation where the Earth was not the center of the known universe. In order to depict Galilei on canvas, Virtosu has chosen to create a piece which features a celestial object resting firmly atop numerous abstract shapes. This heavenly body is definitive in its form, while the various dysfunctional structures seem to almost squabble beneath it. The circular object is no doubt the sun - the source of much inspiration for Galilei and his line of work. The objects beneath include various segments of society attempting to fathom the true nature of reality. While only one of these fragments was able to accurately understand the purpose and structure of the cosmic world, the others attempted to dissuade this fragment from the truth and enforce a version that is purely based on biblical value. The reddish form dominating the painting represents the Catholic Church and the Inquisition, while Galilei is seen fending off the advances of the powerful organization in order to leave an indelible mark on the scientific community.

                                          Geisha (2017) oil painting Description

                                          The immersive tendency, the drive to include the spectator in the spectacle, to recruit the audience as the third astronaut, to allow the public to vote on the X Factor contestant, does seem to amount to a social trend that should be critically evaluated. These are mass experiences of course and not likely to be wholly offset by looking at a Virtosu abstract paintings. But it is possible to claim that such paintings occupy and keep open an important cultural space and answer an unmet need for diversity and opposition. And if this sounds like a space for winners, it’s possible to interpret other recent cultural interventions as sharing the same critical position, making abstraction seem less isolated. The distinctive facial decoration and hairstyles, refined kimonos made of silks with exquisite colorful designs and the graceful demeanor of the Geisha have presented an entrancing subject for Japanese artists over the centuries. The tradition of the geisha is still deeply entrenched in Japanese culture. The selection process starts at a young age of around 15 and training is fairly rigorous over several years. Known as a Maiko in the beginning, the young women observe and train after being accepted into an Okiya ( Geisha house) – where they live and are taught the art of Geisha. Traditionally avoiding being literal, Geisha by Gheorghe Virtosu, turns the personage into the dense and energetic flux of colors. And only some nuances provide us with the clue for reading it and reconstructing the author’s idea. The elements with ornamentation represent kimono, the yellow zigzag-like shape in the upper part can be seen both as the hair decoration geisha extensively used, or as a sitting figure of a guest. Multiple elements and faces are embeded into the canvas inviting the viewer to a puzzle exercise giving opportunity to a multitude of interpretaions. Unlike most of the artists, this canvas has a horizontal format as a homage to the Japanese woodblock printing. At the same time, the abstract painting contains a conscious or unconscious reference to the European tradition: the vertical borders. The capacity of the abstract language enables Virtosu to avoid the cultural appropriation: the oil painting isn’t a straightforward replica of the massively popular character in the context, which is completely detached from the original environment. The artist shows all respect to the Japanese heritage, creating an elaborated portrayal, which is as multilayered, as the dress of geisha. The relative popularity and critical success of Virtosu creativity suggests that the sense of being shut out is not negative. The experience of foreign-ness prompts the viewer to construct an adapted consciousness, outside the usual routines, in order to deal with a highly visible world to which they are not granted entry unless they are willing to. As viewers we have privileged access to the vast universe of Virtosu's artworks, good, bad or indifferent. Faced with the sheer weight of this phenomen we are surprised with the accessibility to the pictorial space. The audience is encouraged to act out the role of the third astronaut, leaving their critical faculties and autonomy in abeyance, survival strategies around distance and estrangement, the style associated with Virtosu's abstraction, may become increasingly useful.

                                          The challenge of this art is to evolve an expansive landscape that brings the viewer, idea, artist, and experience together. read more

                                              German Spirit (2017) oil painting Description

                                              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.

                                                  Globetrotter monk (2016) oil painting Description

                                                  While most of Virtosu’s work focuses on specific moments in time or highlights the achievements of noteworthy individuals from our past and present, certain creations are left in the subjective realm in order to challenge our minds and propel our imaginations forward. The concept of a “Globetrotter Monk” is a unique one, and this has been fascinatingly depicted in this thoughtful piece. Monks are associated with Buddhism, a pacifistic way of life that focuses on self-awareness and meditation to unlock the secrets of the mind. The Globetrotter Monk is one who is traveling the world in order to spread the teachings of Buddha and help enlighten the masses. The color most associated with statutes of Buddha is a shade of bright gold, and this is prominently featured in this work. The monk in this painting appears to be contorted in a unique shape but has managed to retain a meditative posture regardless of the distortions. This symbolizes his ability to retain his core values and beliefs despite covering the length and breadth of the planet by foot in order to profess the teachings of Buddha. The gentle green background seen in the painting creates an enclosure for the Globetrotting monk within, marked by strong and purposeful brushstrokes accentuated with a softer shade of green. This boundary acts as a cerebral enclosure for the monk who has to strive to retain his peace of mind during his many journeys in service of his religion. Virtosu is paying tribute to the services of a silent pilgrim who is dedicated to his cause and is intent on helping those in need.
