AfterLife. Dominic-Petru Virtosu Dominic-Petru Virtosu
«Afterlife» is part of a broader project called «Dreams and Vanities» - It is a work where I engage the theme of death vs. Dream in a playful, colorful and very serious way.

Misterious blue dancers with red outfits populate this incredible surreal landscape. Death here is but a dream of something beyond. It is a stage, a steady fluid state in which color and reality merge.

I wanted this composition to be as colorful as possible in spite of it's dark theme. I worked with oil paints and many layers, using artist-tape to cover-up and spray paint on different areas of the canvas.

The canvas is 200x200cm: this is a size that I favour because it allows me to work freely with color and gesture, while keeping a good amount of control over the details that I wanted to introduce for each characters face.

The tomb in the middle has a traditional Romanian cross - with many rounded corners - as symbols of our simple yet elegant decoration for the process of death.

You could say that this composition is sort of a vanity.
