Surreal Abstract Tiger Skull Collage – White

Tiger skull collage on black square, over light background. Surreal abstract art in black and white by Joseph Westrupp.

The title of this picture is Protean White, a high key version of Protean Black, which is also black and white.

Altogether there are four variations, the other two, Protean and Protean Eclipse, being color and made some months before the black and whites.

I think this is the first image I’ve made two black and whites of. Why? Considering it now, I have no reason in particular for the number of variations I ever do. I guess it’s a matter of serendipity during editing, with the constant experimenting thereof normally providing hints of other possibilities along the way.

Though that said, sometimes even a single version is extremely difficult to get happening, with colors, tones, and composition refusing to cooperate. Therefore, if other possibilities flow, I just gratefully go with it.
