In Stephen Hansen’s sixth Great Moments in Art show at Zenith he has meticulously recreated selections from centuries of painting and added his signature papier mâché painters interacting with the paintings in ways both witty and surprising.

Hansen says, “I started the Great Moments series in 2014, to take a break from sculpture. Then I decided I wanted to paint more. After nine years, it still resonates with me. Through this series I have developed late-in-life art appreciation.”

Hansen has had one-man shows in galleries and museums in Detroit, Chicago, Santa Fe, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Scottsdale, Palm Beach, and New York. His unique papier mâché sculptures are included in museum, corporate, private, and government collections including the New Mexico Capitol Art Collection in Santa Fe, The Federal Reserve and Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., and United States Embassies in Naples, Italy and Caracas, Venezuela.

Zenith Gallery is located at 1429 Iris Street NW.
