Artist's Description

Steel Heart, Double Masg by Upside-Down artist L. R. Emerson II

This research-based ambigram, artwork was documented in 1999 and then in 2004, the research image was transformed into a “Digigraph” (a unique new art medium using traditional art media and technology).

This limited edition is offered as follows:
Fine Art prints matted or mounted – edition size is 25.
Photographic prints – edition size is 25 and
Canvas prints are limited to 7 for the entire world!
General Merchandise including T-Shirts, cell and tablet cases and apparel are offered for the first time at unlimited volume.

The digigraph featured here is part of L. R. Emerson’s 50+ inventions for making art by combining traditional mediums and digital technology. This work is a culmination of pen and ink, photography and computer aided design.

American Artist, researcher and Inventor L. R. Emerson II may be considered equally the Thomas Edison of art yet is also easily considered among the world’s most unusual artists.

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 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 the Upside-Down Artwork known as Masg art titled: “Ode to Baselitz”.

Note: The terms Digigraph and Digigraphs was both, first conceived and later “coined” as an artmaking term by L. R. Emerson II and documented in The Purple Tree; Art in a Boundless Age, 2009.
