Surreal Abstract Seashell Collage and Boxes

Red seashell collage with white pinstripe rectangles on blue background. Surreal abstract art by Joseph Westrupp.

The title of this picture is Seriatim.

This is a product of the whims of aesthetic taste. I made an image I thought looked pretty cool, and put it up here. Then like the sudden intrusion of reality into an illusion, I didn’t like it.

That sometimes happens. The offending creation has to be immediately torn down from where it might be seen, and I wonder why I ever liked it. Such are the vagaries of making art, at least in my experience.

Anyway, this image arose as a result—it’s very different, but based on all the same raw materials. I guess this one wouldn’t have existed had it not been for the failed attempt, so it’s all for the best.

There’s a black and white version of this image named Seriatim Ashen.
