Technique: Acrylic, plaster and gold ink
Support: canvas
Size: 100×100 cm

The artwork is inspired by Kepler-452 b, which is the latest planet discovered by NASA on the 23th of July 2015, throughout the “Earth Similarity Index” research. The minimal painting is made up of two vertical lines, whose colors evoke the central circle. The planet has a dense and impenetrable atmosphere: it holds back and confuses about any chance of life forms on the mysterious “Earth”.
