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 of the planet Mars, as it could not be otherwise, is a painting dominated by the color red. The look of the face of the painting bears some resemblance to the gaze of the earth, a nod to the historical idea of possible Martian life and the consideration of being a second earth. The red look and red lips give a lot of strength to this Martian face, and contrast with the softness of the red surface of the work. An intense and captivating piece.

Mars was the Roman god of war, and his Greek equivalent was called Ares. The red color of the planet Mars, related to blood, favored that it was considered since ancient times as a symbol of the god of war. Mars is sometimes referred to as the Red Planet. The star Antares, close to the ecliptic in the constellation of Scorpio, gets its name as a rival (ant-) of Mars, for being its brightness similar in some of its approaches.

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.

The painting bears a Certificate of Authenticity printed on paper and affixed to the back of the painting.
