Psyche Cross Stitch

Major: geology

Genre/Medium: cloth and thread, 8″ x 10″

About the work: This cross stitch is based off the current artist rendering of the Psyche asteroid. I chose to exaggerate the image by using a lot of color to help it pop off the black background (and because there are only so many choices of grey thread!). If you are interested in cross-stitching your own Psyche, the pattern I created and thread color recommendations can be downloaded here:

This painting on glass uses metallic colors of silvers, whites, grays, and rusts in abstract orb shapes.

Mixed Metallic

Major: geology

Genre/Medium: acrylic paint on glass, 13.5″ x 17″

About the work: This painting was inspired by the color palettes of the current artist rendering of the asteroid and my fellow Psyche interns’ recent artworks. It seemed fitting to me to create an abstract piece that allowed for greater interpretation and imagination, similar to the interpretations that are resulting from the small amount of data we currently have on Psyche.

This is a photograph of a woman looking outwards and upwards. The background is gray and black and there are painted stripes of yellow, orange, red, and purple along one side. The woman's outline is accentuated and her eyes are obscured with white paint.

Curious

Major: geology

Genre/Medium: acrylic paint on canvas print photograph, 10″ x 13″

About the work: Curiosity is the theme for this piece. To signify this I chose to position the model looking outwards and upwards. The color gray is representative of the unknown, black of space, and brighter colors of the new information we will gain through the Psyche mission. Curiosity is innate in all humans and does not belong to one type of person. I chose to emphasize this by providing the model some anonymity by covering her eyes and to further accentuate her line of sight.
