Hacer, whose chosen pseudonym comes from Spanish, meaning “to make,” was trained as a fabricator and has expertise in structural welding and cabinetry. These skills have translated directly into his artmaking, and are especially visible in his lively and complex depictions of animals. Rabbit Running (2009) shows an agile rabbit in action. Its front legs are thrust downward with its back legs brought high, as if leaping acrobatically. Painted in a rich cerulean, the complicated shadows cast by the various planes give the monochrome figure dynamism, enhancing its sense of movement.
