Surreal Abstract Seashell Fragments

Red seashell collage divided by white lines on blue and yellow background. Surreal abstract art by Joseph Westrupp.

The title of this picture is Fugue Mechanics 2. The original Fugue Mechanics is the same shell also on a rectangularly divided background, but very different in feel.

In these minimalistic surreal abstracts, I’m trying to show you the aesthetic joy I experience in simple shapes and patterns. (Albeit darkness-tinged, but to me that only adds to the joy.)

The caveat is that I have to be sure of the composition before going ahead. The very simplicity means there’s nowhere to hide compositional awkwardness.

This is image one of two: there’s a black and white version named Fugue Mechanics in Black 2.
