Pink Eroded Skull

Pink eroded skull, surreal art photograph by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Pink Textures. It’s mainly descriptive, but the phrase also appeals to my aesthetic sense, which is why I used it.

The first Textures was in black and white. This updated version was another of my images in reaction to working with no color for so long. I indulged in lots of bright color, reveling in the possibilities of breaking the self-imposed artistic limit of only gray shades.

That’s a bit different for me. Even before I restricted my creative endeavors to black and white, my use of color was normally fairly restrained.

This skull has appeared in a number of my pieces—I keep going back to it because it’s such an interesting example. There’s just something about its shape and degradation that really appeals.
