reppoH desreveR – leirA rof tsuJ

The header image of my last post on Edward Hopper on INVISIBLE FORMS is rather daring -and perhaps improper-, since it is featured with its colours reversed. Anyway, the visual appeal is so strong that it well might justify the change (to me, it does).

Altering the actual look of that early oil -“Summer Interior” (1909)- was a very personal homage of mine to my late sister, who liked to reverse, and further manipulate, the colours of many of her most loved and most personal photos. She -Ariel/leirA- not only liked blues and violets, but often dreamt in blues and violets; also, all her experiences relative to hypnosis and regression were tinted, to a great extent, with these hues -plus emerald green and magenta and pure white; and pure black too.

Once I saw the result of reversing “Summer Interior”, I experimented with many other paintings, beginning with “Automat” and “Chop Suey”, and became captivated by their renewed beauty (not at all lesser than the original one, and sometimes -I wish very much to say it!- greater… Think of me what you want.)

I know for sure that Ariel would have enjoyed the experiment. Probably very much.
