Surreal Abstract Seashell With Lines – Black and White

Seashell fragment with lines. Surreal abstract art in black and white by Joseph Westrupp.

The title of this picture is Laeotrope 2, being the black and white version of Laeotrope.

I mentioned in the post on Laeotrope that the title originated with an old image named Lemon Laeotrope. That’s true also for the composition—this was the result of an idea brainstorm that resulted in Lemon Laeotrope. Ironically that one didn’t stand the test of time, but this one caught my eye when I was looking through my archive recently. However, maybe I’ll revisit the original sometime, too. It’s a very simple composition, and the challenge of making it work is appealing (edit: I’ve now done this).
