Artist's description:

Lachesism is a word used to describe a desire to be struck by disaster. I think it’s the idea that you are no longer in control and neither is everybody else, that is so liberating and desirable. I find that to be true when I paint as well, I long for the paint to come alive and terrify me with its power. I avoid the inanimate strokes of paint applied with a brush, in favor of paint that takes on a life of its own as it
flows, sets and separates on its own accord. I let the water dance across the canvas while pulling the pigments, creating a real physical landscape with rivers, valleys
and hills. Simultaneously a representation of an imaginary landscape emerges from the colours and patterns that form. Most of my work focuses on the relationship between the static and the dynamic elements of nature, like waves crashing against a cliff. In a similar manner, I allow layer after layer to wash over the surface leaving behind a trail. It is a slow process and the result is never immediate, the
steps are repeated for as many times as needed. Every inch of the surface is a deliberate accident.
