AESTHETICA ART PRIZE 2018: We are delighted to announce that The Council of Nonsense Peering at Wasted Souls has been longlisted in this years competition and will feature in the Aesthetica Art Prize Anthology 2018 "showcasing the work of 100 of the most exciting artists around the world".
Charlotte Hopkins Hall’s The Council of Nonsense Peering at Wasted Souls was painted in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower disaster in London. The image questions notions of collective responsibility by highlighting the anonymity of those involved. Reflecting the contemporary phenomenon of detachment, the image offers an imperceptible and silent weight.
