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.

In “Mujer Atardecer,” Hernández Bastos presents three figures with the central focus resting on a woman in the foreground. Her form is ablaze with fiery orange and yellow hues, evoking a sunset, and her arching back pulsates with vitality, and vigour. Against a backdrop of rich purple and blue tones, Hernández Bastos layers oil paint, infusing the composition with a depth and intensity that enhances the ethereal quality of a sunset woman painting.

In this sunset woman painting, Hernández Bastos integrates his typical mechanical elements as the figures seem to float and merge across the canvas, imbuing his works with a futuristic quality. Despite this, he balances historical symbolism with themes of eroticism, tenderness, and isolation, creating a multi-dimensional narrative that resonates with viewers.
