I think we’d all agree that it has been a hell of a ride…socially, professionally, culturally, politically…and while we have been navigating the choppy waters of work, world and family, we have colleagues who created and shared remarkable music, art and words. Welcome to Corpus Callosum, the Fall Issue, 2020.
Managing editor, Lia Vellardita and reviewers chose from a largess of submissions, and offer everything from Amanda Young’s poignant “Remembrance Waltz,” to Marissa Paulson’s exceptional “Best Friend Wedding Gift Quilt,” to Ryan McAdam’s wrenching painting, “Dying Alone”, and Anna Stecher’s eye popping linocut print, “Death Grip.” There is pen and ink, exemplified by Noah Trapp’s “Let Ol’ Rob Soothe Your Soul,” 3-D offerings, like Holly Cohn’s “Here,” with found stairs and painting. Michael Killips’s tactile charcoal, “Tired Piano,” the digital illustration, “Neurons a la Klimt,” by Cameron Casey, and photos, like “White Coats for Black Lives,” by Thao Nguyen show the breadth of aptitude demonstrated by our health sciences colleagues.
And, the writing, wow, Holly Cohn’s “Force,” Fabu Carter’s “For Our Beloved Elders with Memory Loss,” and Dipesh Navsaria’s “Hephaestus.” are just a few of the pieces that resonate. We hope you find the artwork, in all its guises, transportive, healing, inspiring…distracting (in a good way). Share the link. Comment here. All good, safe wishes for the holidays to come. And…think about creating something for the next issue, it’s therapeutic for us all.
