Night Hike 5
The "Night Hikes" painting series is inspired by my nighttime hiking adventures in the jungles of Bolivia and Columbia. Creeping through total darkness in the middle of thick jungle plants with only moonlight and local guides to trust our pathless journeys. We searched for jaguars, anaconda, capybaras, and spiders larger than a human head.
These paintings on panels using Stuart Semple's Blackest Black Paint do not reflect light. They have small cracks that reveal the white underneath which represents the visiable light that reflected on wet surfaces through the jungles.
