Giant Skull Hovering Over Sri Lankan Landscape

Giant skull hovering over Sri Lankan landscape, surreal artwork by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Below. Concise, but poetically suggestive and open to interpretation.

It’s a simple composition, but I think quite effective because of that. Maybe surprisingly, it’s a composition of at least three images, if memory serves.

The landscape was taken in Sri Lanka, and the sky is from a New Zealand photo. I actually thought a more dramatic landscape would be the way to go, but this simpler one proved better.

That’s why experimentation is such an integral part of my process. Intuition and initial artistic visions are often contradicted.
