The quintessence of Inversionism is taking the potential of any characteristic
of an image to its limits to the point when it is flipped upside down beyond
the event horizon of things. Such inversions are not random, however: they
correspond with people’s expectations. When a lemon is depicted blue instead
of yellow because the citrus is naturally sour and is synesthetically associated
with colder, less comfortable, color – blue; thus people may potentionally
be “ready” for inversions. Which characteristics of images can be inverted?
It could be anything: color, composition, or its element, its form, and
even content. Thus, Inversionism is, to some extent, an escape from reality
and manifestation of an imaginary realm which is simultaneously inherent
of the actual reality and infinitely distant from it, being its “counter-essence”
All this considered,what is the point of Inversionism? In what ways does
it come to dialogue withour new-modernity, the era innately meant to put
an end to any cultural movements? Inversionism is a way to cope with the
monotonous totality of both abstract art and realism and its forms. It
is thus a radical escape from these modes of art; it is radical because
it strives to retain the “realistic” framework of an image while turning
upside down some of its characteristics, a twist towards abstraction.
