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.
