“I start each work by placing a random combination of paint into a dispensing gun. I then distribute the blended pixels of colour across the painting surface until the field is covered. The painting is then finished. There is no editing; I only get one chance. This constraint is very liberating. I know that the latent potential of the paint in the gun could describe near infinite worlds but ultimately a single image will emerge. I no longer have to consider when a painting is finished. This process has changed very little. What has is the way that I consider the slowly evolving trail of paint and the ways that it might equate to the visual world.”

These churches from all over the world are not victims of natural disaster, they all sit in the valley of a reservoir. Many reservoirs were created in valleys with small towns or villages nestled in them, the benefit of having reservoirs always outweighed the cost in relocating a small population. In many of these settlements the religious buildings were the tallest and once the valleys were flooded they could still be seen poking out of the water in a surreal post apocalyptic manner. Lots of them still survive, making more of an appearance every time the water level drops.
Among these examples are Ladybower, Graun, Panta de Sau, Tehri and Potosi
