Surreal Abstract Elephant Bone Collage – Red and Blue

Blue elephant bone with striped geometric shapes on red background. Surreal abstract art by Joseph Westrupp.

The title of this picture is Murine Scansion. It’s based on a photo of an elephant skull.

My intention drafting this was for the composition to be dependent on a large portion of the canvas as opposed to my more centrally-focussed work. The result is a nice asymmetric flow from top left to bottom right, and I’m pleased it’s a bit different. Compounding the diversion is the jarring color scheme—usually I try to tie the colors together.

There’s a black and white named Murine Scansion Black.
