I am very interested in 'walls' and have taken a great many photos of various walls over the years.
I have always liked walls, but developed a love of them after seeing an exhibition organized by the Hayward Gallery for the Arts Council of England. It was called Dubuffet's Walls, Lithographs for Les Murs.
Quote "Dubuffet's walls are everyone's walls. They are the walls of a particular place at a particular time, but they are also the walls of our everyday experience. We live within and between these, or similar walls, real or metaphorical. Backdrop, screen, tabula rasa: they reveal or hide, and bear the imprint of yearnings, hopes and desires, outrage and despair"
If you come across his book it is worth a second glance.
Here is a website that will tell you more about Dubuffet's walls. Hayward Gallery
These are photos of walls taken at Plas Tan y Bwlch at the weekend.
