The Last of the Mohicans. Painted 2014 to 2016 by Moldovan-born British contemporary artist, Gheorghe Virtosu, b. 1968. Oil painting, 190 cm high by 135 cm wide. 75 X 53 inches. Abstract art.
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.
Many people believed that the Native Americans were disappearing, and would ultimately be assimilated or fail to survive. The phrase, "the last of the Mohicans," has come to represent the sole survivor of a noble race or type.
