Surreal Abstract Crab Shell Collage

Pink crab shell collage with black geometric shapes, on blue background. Surreal abstract art by Joseph Westrupp.

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.
