Emerson is best known today as the leading artist/researcher of the Upside-Down Art movement or “Masg” art movement which has origins to 1983. Masg is Gaelic meaning to mix; or infuse. Recently fellow upside-down artist Georg Baselitz called L. R. Emerson’s art"…inspiring." Emerson has never intended to become a household name in artmaking and the evidence of his effort to avoid marketability is his diligent effort to make art that was intentionally against the common trends.
Overall L. R. is a research academician who has invested his life’s work to pioneering multi-directional art and championing for the upside-down art movement. Emerson’s Upside-Down “Masg” Art and also “Pop Not” art movements prove he is no fame seeker. Featured at Saatchionine.com Emerson has presented a work which has garnered the attention of Charles Saatchi himself who personally flagged L. R. Emerson ‘s work as “Liked”. Paying homage to no-expressionist painter Georg Baselitz, Emerson presents at Saatchi this work Upside-Down Artwork or also known as Masg art “Ode to Baselitz”. Note: The terms Digigraph and Digigraphs was both, first conceived and later “coined” as an artmaking term by L. R and documented in The Purple Tree; Art in a Boundless Age, 2009.
