Mixed media art piece loosely based on the concept of soup and crackers.
A lot of people asked about the motivation for this piece, and as with many of my pieces, I just got a silly idea and ran with it. I entered a food-themed show, and was assigned the combination of soup and crackers. Having had the lyrics of “Animal Crackers In My Soup” seared into my brain for life by late-night Shirley Temple “Little Darling Collection” infomercials, I was incapable of producing anything else. As I feverishly plotted the idea, the rest of the lyrics kept playing in my mind, “loop-the-loop,” and thus the Loops Bröther cat arrived in the scene, silently judging in the background.
