Yellow Skull on Blue

Yellow skull on blue background, art photograph by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Golden Child. Part literal description because of the color, part poetic subliminal suggestion. I say it often, but I really think introducing that touch of poetic association adds a lot to art, to furrow brows and get the brain thinking, wondering, and interpreting.

This image is one of the first color pieces I did after a protracted black and white stint. That’s why the colors are very intense, probably more than I’d usually go for. After all that black and white, I felt like my world had expanded and I was excited to indulge in this new facet of it.

I’ve used this base image for other work, but for this I basically stripped it back and splashed some serious color on it.
