Faithful to the “credible”
Inverni is a contemporary painter, whose collocation in an artistic context is quite hard to interpret. His easy and immediate key to interpretation hardly finds its place in such a complex time like the one of nowadays’ contemporary art.
Playing with poetics in a “copied” reality
At first glance, Inverni’s works might give an impression of hyperrealism but […]His painting style, as a matter of fact, sort of deletes the Real while gets closer and closer to paroxysm. With a solid technique and preparation, Inverni undoubtedly inherited his talent form his father Francesco. His paintings are very traditional in both the use of canvas and the material composition of colors, such as wax pastels and oil. He doesn’t feel the need to resort to 20th century’s avant-garde techniques.
The “non-word” conveyed by “ precariousness”
Inverni sort of talks to the viewer’s emotion through his articulate hermeticism. The viewer then finds his inner meaning thanks to the silent impressions and feelings conveyed by the paintings. The “non word” feeling, conveyed by the “precariousness” of the paper represented in the paintings, also conveys the feeling of human precariousness and weakness, of the society seldom finding itself in a childish world, a society that needs a bit of chaos to experience naivety again. Last but not least, the exorcism of paper is another central theme, a very common material to us, represented here as worn-out, abandoned, decayed and hardened by time, as a symbol of the human being, abandoning himself adrift.
The ideological and pictorial “return to order”
In his twenty-five-year experience, Fabio Inverni continuously developed his own stylistic current. When he first debuted in 1992, he portrayed his personal interpretation of the genre scenes, which are in this case located in a dreamlike and unfinished reality. Inverni’s hand is indeed meticulous and accurate from the very first years of his career, especially in the execution of the tiniest details.

Extremely real, and extremely symbolic
The artistic path of the painter Fabio Inverni continued to improve and evolve throughout 17 years of prolific production, now oriented to more interior and intimate themes. His works focus around the human being, as well as his deepest inside, his childish side and purity, his melancholy related to the absence of figures, and his complete essence, related to empty and silent pieces of paper. Extremely real, and extremely symbolic.
