"Chac Mul (Black)," by Robert Hansen
This painting is composed of "Duco" automotive lacquer that has been poured onto masonite. The masonite has been cut out to form the shape of the painting seen here. This is from Hansen's Chac Mul series of the early 1980's. Hansen continues to be a painter who has constantly evolved over the years, while retaining use of the human form as a strong element in all his works.
