Miguel Hernández Bastos employs a unique technique in his artworks, using pencil, charcoal, acrylic paint, and the unconventional medium of smoke from an oil lamp, which burns onto the canvas like pigment. This distinctive approach allows him to delve into themes of metamorphosis and the fleeting essence of the human form, while also incorporating historical symbolism associated with the candle in Renaissance portraiture.

“Circle of Time” is a mesmerizing painting crafted entirely from smoke, with ethereal rings radiating from the center outward. It subtly alludes to the profound challenges we face in comprehending the elusive nature of space and time.

Integrating mechanical elements into this circle of time painting, Hernández Bastos conjures a futuristic quality. He balances historical symbolism with themes of eroticism, tenderness, and isolation, creating a multi-dimensional narrative that resonates with viewers.
