New Artwork Arrivals From Abstract Art Master 08/18




Virtosu Art Gallery new arrivals from abstract art master Gheorghe Virtosu. 7 masterpieces.

A work of art is a world in itself reflecting the senses and emotions of the artist’s world”

— Hans Hofmann

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 15, 2018 / —

It has to be said that this has been a tremendous month at Virtosu Art Gallery. The arrival of some fabulous new oil paintings from abstract art master Gheorghe Virtosu, seven stunning new oil paintings. The artworks are part of artist 2016 portfolio and will be on display at our gallery under Collection 2016.

The titles of the oil paintings are as follows:

Theodore Roosevelt, The new and old world order, Cowboy of the universe, Putin, Da Vinci, Alexander the Great, Prince Charles in waiting

Having a biography full of dramatic and difficult situations, contemporary artist Gheorghe Virtosu doesn’t try to reject and forget it – he courageously faces his inner challenges and sublimates the life experience into aesthetic form. The artist conveys the sense of drama and action through the complex and vibrant textures. The canvas becomes the substance the contemporary artist uses to ‘sculpt’ the image. 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 artist signed representation in 2017. Our gallery successfully placed more than 135 Virtosu’s canvases within their new homes with investors and art collectors worldwide. Since his public appearance in 2016, exposing his work to a wider audience, the artist has grown into a highlight of the abstract art realm. Valued by art lovers, investors and art galleries, the artist makes his canvases accessible and provides inspiration for young, upcoming artists. For investors and art collectors, it is the chance to buy artworks that fit their strategies.

Of course, Virtosu art pieces can be viewed here on our website and new pieces are being added all the time, so do keep checking back in.

Author Rick Lacey Launches Surreal Psychological Thriller – 'A Fan of Death and Shakespeare'

Hannibal and Carrie had Identical Twin Daughters

Readers who have been waiting for the next leap in the Female-Driven Psychological Thriller will find it times two in the Summer's Shocking Novel by Rick Lacey

WILLOUGHBY, OHIO, UNITED STATES, August 15, 2018 / — Reader appetite for the truly unique psychological thriller is greater than ever. Since the releases of "Gone Girl" (June 2012) and "The Girl on the Train" (February 2015), that demand has been left growing and largely unfilled. Written to satisfy the pent-up craving, "A Fan of Death and Shakespeare" promises to be the next extraordinary leap in the evolution of the female-driven psychological thriller.

From the Author:
As a frustrated reader of psychological thrillers and a victim of corporate downsizing, I set out to both expose corporate corruption and explain psychosis. My book takes readers into the dysfunctional mind of the publicly-traded corporation and the bipolar minds of identical twin psychotic sisters. Readers will decide for themselves which is worse, but so far, most are cheering for the psychotic killers and against the corporate directors.

About the Author:
Rick brings lifetimes of knowledge to his fifth novel including eight years working for BP American in its Cleveland, Ohio headquarters building where the novel is primarily set. He holds three degrees, has pursued five careers, has traveled extensively, and has met some incredible characters while accumulating experiences that add color and authenticity to his time-honored writing philosophy: He lives it; He writes it.

About the Book:
Kirkus Reviews compared the novel to those of Steven King and to the work of Thomas Harris' who wrote the Hannibal Lecter series and hinted at a film adaptation by comparing it to David Cronenberg's Dead Ringers. called it "One of the decade's most original and surreal psychological thrillers" and went on the say, "Lacey has crafted an impossible-to-put-down murder tale while skewering corporate dysfunction and deftly exploring a rare twin psychopathy."
Inspired by real events and set against the backdrop of a corporate downsizing, "A Fan of Death and Shakespeare" owes its thrills to the exploration of one of the most perfect and mind-blowing forms of psychosis, Folie a Deux from the French meaning Madness of Two. Readers witness identical twin sisters, born with tremendous potential but with a family history of manic-depressive illness, suffer a traumatic emotional event that transforms them from carefree young girls into vengeful psychotic killers. The book delves deeply into the phenomenal workings of their psychotic minds, a place previously available only to psychotics themselves and a select group of dedicated psychiatrists. Although the book reveals every detail as the sisters plan and carry out a killing spree designed to take revenge and cure themselves, readers are shocked by an ending none see coming.

The novel was written with the big screen in mind and features big scenes in locations around the world from northern Ohio to England, the Scottish Highlands, Florida, Cancun, Hawaii, and Australia.

Visit the novel's Facebook Page for interesting posts and updates.

"… the core conceit of criminally inclined, psychologically damaged twins is an absorbing one that will appeal to those who enjoy dark, twisted books by the likes of Stephen King or Thomas Harris, or films such as director David Cronenberg's Dead Ringers." — Kirkus Reviews

Review by
A Fan of Death and Shakespeare, a Psychological Thriller by Rick Lacey
The Bottom Line: One of the decade’s most original and surreal psychological thrillers, Lacey has crafted an impossible-to-put-down murder tale while skewering corporate dysfunction and deftly exploring a rare twin psychopathy.
Rick Lacey's new thriller opens in 1994 – the same day as the O.J. Simpson murders – as BP employee John McCall discovers his boss’ body in his office. McCall calls Cleveland homicide detective James Johnson, with whom he is well acquainted – Johnson investigated the murder of McCall's wife and friend two years earlier. With the cold composure of a survivor who has seen more than his share of tragedy, McCall offers a theory for his boss’ death: the beginning of a murderous campaign designed to stop a massive corporate downsizing.

Meanwhile, in London, we're introduced to twin sisters Beatrice Enola Winter and Beatrice Gay Winter at Heathrow Airport, where Beatrice is boarding a Concorde at the behest of BP. As she observes her fellow passengers, it's clear that she has the mind of a predator.

As the ensuing chapters unfold, the relationship between the Winter twins is beyond fascinating.
On one hand, Lacey – who was actually downsized from BP in real life – offers a supremely detailed dive into the co-dependency, sexuality and psychological intimacy of twin culture.

But once you realize what the twins are up to, the relationship becomes the driving force in the investigation at the heart of the book. Characters this well-crafted make for a novel that is impossible to put down. Bravo.

Pamela Jo Roller to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

LOGANSPORT, INDIANA, UNITED STATES, August 15, 2018 / — There’s a popular saying that not all heroes wear capes and it couldn’t be truer than for Pamela Jo Roller. Pamela’s life has been a series of courageous moves—from making a difference for struggling students, to overcoming her vision problems, to volunteer efforts, to taking care of a mother who faced all types of adversity herself. Pamela not only triumphed in each of these, she earned awards for her accomplishments, and wrote a book about Clara Evelyn Sizemore’s life, to honor her mom and be an inspiration for other women.

Pamela’s mother, who goes by Evelyn, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in February of 2008. Pamela stood by her mom as she faced the physical and emotional ordeals of cancer treatment and began writing while mom was getting her hours of Chemo. It was not only a way to pay tribute to a mother whose time might be running out, it was therapeutic for Pamela; writing gave her focus and kept her calm during the endless hours of waiting.

Evelyn’s story, entitled My Mother’s Graceful Inspiration is no best seller, but it accomplished Pamela’s goal of paying tribute to a mother who faced adversity– at every age and in every form– and still held her head high. She never raged at God either. Instead, Evelyn kept moving ahead, and is still around today at age 84. Evelyn became pregnant at aged 16 and again at 17, both children born dead. Pamela was the first of her 5 kids to survive. Evelyn raised them as a single mom, working at a factory (back when maternity leave didn’t exist), all the while pursuing her GED and then cake decorator certification. Evelyn’s graces included making stunning special occasion cakes, and catering weddings and anniversaries. She made lovely quilts for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and Evelyn frequently donated quilts to Riley Children’s Hospital. Evelyn also raised bright and successful children, especially Pamela, who became a teacher and earned several honors throughout her career.

Pamela recently retired after more than 40 years in teaching. She loved finding a way to engage her students, especially when it came to science, and had a mock space shuttle simulator in her classroom. It not only helped reach her elementary school students, Pamela made it available to other classes, grades, and schools. Pamela was a Disney Honoree for American Teacher Awards in 2002-03. In 2005, she was asked to contribute to the series of Best Practices educational books by Randy Stone. Pamela’s articles appeared in Best Classroom Practices for Reaching all Learners, as well as the Reading, Math, Writing and Science volumes in that series.

Pamela is sweet and humble about such honors, including when she received the Pharos Tribune Good Neighbor Award. She knows she did volunteer work for the Red Cross, delivering flowers and wheeling out released patients, and that community members also admired a mentoring program she had launched, matching at-risk-children with adult role models. Sometimes the difference between a poor student and a student who excels is just having someone in their corner, to listen and build up their confidence, says Pamela.

Pamela is never sure who nominates her for these distinctions and thinks maybe it is all just a divine hand at work. She is, after all, a devout Christian. Pamela mentions God as a major influence in her life and the source of strength that helped her just keep putting one foot in front of the other during her most difficult days.

CUTV News Radio will feature Pamela Jo Roller in interviews on August 17 at 2:00pm EDT with Doug Llewelyn, and on August 24th at 2:00pm EDT with Jim Masters.

Haven Life debuts Plus, a new suite of services that benefits life insurance customers while they’re living

Haven Term policyholders can access to an online will service, a digital safe deposit box, an at-home DNA test and health report, and in store health services.

NEW YORK, NY, USA, August 15, 2018 / — A new offering unveiled today by online life insurance agency Haven Life provides customers with benefits beyond life insurance coverage. Haven Life Plus is an innovative rider to the Haven Term life insurance policy that helps policyholders live healthier, fuller and more protected lives.

While Haven Life customers have already taken the important step of securing a term life insurance policy, issued by Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual), they have other items on their to-do lists that they might not have gotten to yet. In February 2018, Haven Life surveyed policyholders to find out what benefits would appeal most to them. Eighty-three percent said they would use a free online will service if it were made available to them, 66% are interested in a digital vault for storing important documents, and 75% said they would be open to innovative wellness services like an at-home DNA test.

“We are a mission-driven business that aims to redefine the life insurance buying process and the relationship we have with customers,” said Haven Life CEO and Co-founder Yaron Ben-Zvi. “To date, we’ve been able to deliver on an innovative way to protect your loved ones when you’re gone. Now, we’re turning our focus to how we can also enhance the lives of customers while they’re living.”

In eligible states, a Haven Term policyholder can take advantage of the following services, which are included in the cost of the policy:
1. A digital solution for creating legal wills for you and your partner at no charge through Trust & Will (a $129 value.) The service also includes a healthcare power of attorney and directives.
2. A secure online safe deposit box for storing, managing and sharing your family’s important documents at no cost through LifeSite (normally $80 per year)
3. A discount for an innovative and actionable at-home health test that determines how well you are aging (or not) based on the length of the protective caps on your DNA strands through TeloYears ($30 for policyholders; normally $99)
4. A 15% discount voucher for family health services at MinuteClinic, inside CVS Pharmacy and Target stores

“The relationship that most people have with their life insurance company is a monthly bill. They have coverage in place, make their premium payments, and hope their loved ones will never have to use it,” said Ben-Zvi. “We’ve always felt there was more we could do for people after they buy a policy. With Haven Life Plus, we’re now able to not only offer easier life insurance but also an easier life.”

In addition to Plus, Haven Life will continue to offer LifeLink, a free-to-all mobile app that allows users to connect with 9-1-1 accurately, instantly and at the touch of a button.

The Haven Life Plus rider is not currently available to residents of Florida, New York, North Dakota, South Dakota or Washington state.

Neither Haven Life nor MassMutual are responsible for the provision of the benefits and services made accessible under the Plus Rider, which are provided by third party vendors (partners).

Green Careers, Jobs, and Businesses for a Clean Economy

We’ll learn about initiatives in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia to help create a clean economy.”

— Janine Finnell, Executive Director, Leaders in Energy
