About the work: Psyche is an asteroid thought to be the remnants of a planetary metal core subjected to extremely strong collisions. In this piece, Psyche is depicted in the throes of its impact, fragmenting throughout space. The background, showing space between Mars and Jupiter, is mostly dark, but Psyche is illuminated. The obscured sphere in the lower middle area of this piece is the colliding object. I created the outline and design for my piece on Adobe Illustrator and then laser cut the image onto masonite.
