Welcome to the official page of the art movement Inversionism

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.
