Celestial Bodies are a set of pictorial works that represent our home in the universe. Our solar system. This painting is handmade by me; Miguel Angel Aranda.
The painting that represents our planet, The Earth, is a painting with certain special characteristics that differentiate it from the rest of the pieces of the Celestial Bodies series. All the blue mass of the hair that represents the seas and oceans has texture and material roughness that represents the terrestrial and maritime rockiness of the planet. Bordering the seas and the total of the piece, we can see a strip of azure blue tone, which represents the Earth's atmosphere. The piece is inclined imitating the axis of rotation of the earth. As can be seen in the shape that the face insinuates, the colors of the base are ochre and green. The intention is to represent the vegetation and land that make up our continents. The intense and complicit look looks at us with recognition of being part of ourselves. The mouth is made with a lot of matter and an intense red that wants to represent the blood and life of all living beings that have existed on the planet. And finally, as the most distinctive detail of the rest of the paintings, it can be seen that in the ear there is painted a metal ring earring, just as it can be seen that in the nose there is also a metal ring piercing. The idea with these two details is to represent the human footprint on the planet with the transformation of the environment and the contribution and creation of materials that do not exist naturally on the planet.
Earth (from the Latin Terra, Roman deity equivalent to Gaia, Greek goddess of femininity and fecundity) is a planet in the solar system that revolves around its star—the Sun—in the third innermost orbit. It is the densest and fifth largest of the eight planets in the solar system. It is also the largest of the four terrestrial or rocky ones.
Earth formed about 4550 million years ago and life emerged about a billion years later.18 It is home to millions of species, including humans, and currently the only astronomical body where life is known to exist.
The series of paintings of Celestial Bodies is composed of ten pictorial works that represent the stars of our solar system. From the Sun to Pluto. Its organic and irregular forms evoke the capricious sense of nature. Then, with a base of acrylics as spot colors generate different shapes and colors that best represent each planet. To finish the work I have painted a human and feminine face to each piece painting in oil the most significant and expressive features of the human being; eyes, nose and mouth. The result is a beautiful and original artistic piece that we can label within a surrealist pop of great visual and colorful impact.
