Surreal Abstract Crab Shell Collage, Geometric Art by Joseph Westrupp

Surreal abstract crab shell collage in pink and blue with black geometric shapes. Experimental, deconstructed art by Joseph Westrupp.

About the Art

The title of this picture is Anfractuosity, a word meaning the state of having many twists and turns.

The underlying shapes are various aspects of crab legs and pincers, from a photo I took with an iPhone. This artwork continues my theme of clashing creepy subjects with soft colors and tones, a juxtaposition I find pleasingly paradoxical.

I’ve done other pieces based on the same photo, one named Uhtceare, and the other Ampersand.
