Human Soup

Chrissie Calvert

If the human species were a material, I'd say we were hessian. I have also painted on the wall because humanity has been doing that for as long as we've had fire. We need reminding that we are still primal beings, beings who need warmth, shelter and each other for sanity's sake.

We have become obsessed with the fallacy that our differences are more important than what we all share. I want to remind us of the face that we all feel, think, obsess, eat, shit and hope. I have used hessian as a material to paint on for its rawness, flexibility strength and grit.
