Surreal Abstract Crab Leg Collage – Black and White

Crab leg collage with black triangle and white lines. Surreal abstract art in black and white by Joseph Westrupp.

The title of this picture is Midnight Ampersand. It’s a tonally very different take on Ampersand, which is a bright image in green and red.

The word midnight serves a few purposes here—it reflects the darkness of the image and the lack of color.

But it also evokes a scene in which someone’s woken from a dream with the surreal vision in the image just fading from memory. Strange, unnerving, and soon to be forgotten completely as sleep returns and the subsequent day subsumes the mental excursions of the night.

There’s also a blue and slightly lighter version of this called Gloaming Ampersand.
