Surreal Abstract Crab Shell and Curves

Yellow crab shell collage with black curves, on light purple background. Surreal abstract art by Joseph Westrupp.

The title of this picture is Vagility, a word meaning the ability of an organism to move around. Using it as a title is homage to my own capability in that respect, which I’m often thankful for. No, more than that, it’s one of the best aspects of existence—I don’t take it for granted.

This is one of two variations—there’s a black and white version called Vagility in Gray.

Actually, that’s just the beginning, there are quite a few images using the base crab shell photo, for some reason it inspired a lot of ideas. The others are Anfractuosity, Uhtceare, and the Ampersand series.
