About the work: This piece shows the Psyche spacecraft approaching the Psyche asteroid. The rough, unknown surface of Psyche is represented in the painting by coarse brush strokes and gaps on the surface, suggesting gaps in knowledge. Colors unlikely to appear on the actual asteroid are used, which emphasizes Psyche’s foreign nature. A face is faintly revealed on the surface of the asteroid. Psyche seems surprised to have a visitor.
