While the concept of a Garden of Eden is widely accepted as a metaphor for a time when human consciousness was pure and untainted by the difficulties of life, it is unclear what a depiction of such a garden would look like. Hence, the artist is proposing through this series, a naturalistic approach to this theme. By mixing lush greenery and imaginative colors, he transposes the state of mind of harmony and purity into a complex mingle of greenery and lines.
„I’ve always wanted to investigate the hypothesis of such a concept” says Virtosu. „My interest was not only based on the myth/story of Eden but also on the power that the concept of Garden incites – a Garden is a kind of Home – it represents the idea of abundance.” This is the reason why the artist has chosen a more exotic, lush representation of such a concept. The garden is welcoming BUT we cannot be sure what dangers lurk just outside of our lign of sight.
