Surreal Abstract Seashell Deconstruction – Black and White

Black and white seashell deconstruction. Surreal abstract art by Joseph Westrupp.

The title of this picture is Sturnidae Waxen Black.

I’m currently drawn to experimenting with the interplay between background and subject, and blurring the lines between them (literally, given the role of hard-edged geometrical elements and crops).

That’s introducing more complexity, though my work’s still fairly minimalistic on the whole, which is consciously so. There’s an appealing purity to simple shapes. I don’t imagine that will change, but can’t say for sure—I couldn’t have predicted where I am now a year ago.

There is also a blue, yellow, and red version of this composition called Sturnidae Waxen.
