Alexandra Charlotte Pullen was longlisted for the Aesthetica Art Prize in 2015 with her piece Paper City, an installation of over 2,000 paper houses constructed from receipts. Her work is imaginative, creating a world in which an individual can think somewhere that is fragmented yet captivating. Pullen is influenced with narrative via mythologies that permeate civilisation. Alexandra’s installation generates thoughtfulness. Using delicate paper, the faltering creativity of human beings is symbolised whilst envisioning a city through our own eyes. Her work focuses on the constraining, overwhelming, yet ultimately intimate consciousness that compels us.
The Aesthetica Art Prize 2016 is now open for entries, accepting submissions across a range of media including photography, sculpture, installation, painting and artists’ film. Prizes include £5,000 courtesy of Hiscox, group exhibition, publication in 100 contemporary artists, £250 art supplies vouchers courtesy of Winsor & Newton and art books courtesy of Prestel. Selected artists are also showcased on Aesthetica’s online channels.
