45 works by the artist David Chandler as aresponse to a very long descriptive sentence in Jonathan Meades' MUSEUMS WITHOUT WALLS 2012. The paintings are mostly in acrylic on canvas or in a large sketchbook on paper or collaged on paper. Some related prints are counted amongst the illustrations. The sources for several of the stencil circles are the medieval stone apses of Santa Maria di Fallerii, Lazio.
