Vintage-Look Geometric Abstract Shell, Surreal Art by Joseph Westrupp

Vintage-look geometric abstract shell, yellow and blue surreal art by Joseph Westrupp.

About the Art

The title of this picture is Lemon Laeotrope. Laeotropic means turning to the left, often in reference to shells. So I made a noun of it, and prefixed a color reference. It’s a poetic-sounding phrase, but actually entirely prosaic when you break it down.

I thought about putting sinistral in the title instead, which means the same as laeotropic and is also a nice title-worthy word, but I like the alliteration of what I chose. Incidentally, dextral means spiraling in the opposite direction to the shell pictured.

And so my fascination with the beauty of skeletal forms continues (albeit exoskeletal in this case).
