Pink Skull Floating Over Green Space

Pink skull floating in bare green space, surreal art by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Green Altitude, the second with this format, the first being Blue Altitude.

Actually, it’s a similar piece in general, save the colors. And this skull is quite different, which in turn changes the mood. This guy has an unnerving blank stare. It looks like he’s just uttered Heart of Darkness’s “The horror! The horror!” Particularly because half its face is missing and it looks like it’s been on the receiving end of some very hard times.

(Tangential admission: it seems more literary and worldly to quote that book, but I haven’t read it. What really springs to mind for me is the same line uttered by Marlin Brando in Apocalypse Now.)
