Deconstructed Surreal Abstract Seashell Collage – Black and White

Deconstructed seashell and lines, in black and white. Surreal abstract art by Joseph Westrupp.

The title of this picture is Antiperihelia Smoke, smoke here used as a metaphor standing in for black and white.

This was another black and white conversion in which achieving the contrast of the color version was difficult. Simply turning down the color didn’t work. In these cases, there’s a whole new set of creative choices to make, and the mood will differ from the colored one.

And further, for some reason most of my black and white work tends to look better on a light background, even if the color iteration is opposite.

The blue and orange version of this composition is called Antiperihelia.
