2015 MSAA Art Showcase Entrants
Christopher Baroody – Hugo, OK
From the odyssey of diagnosis to the war with coming to terms, art has been the only way I can exorcise my devils, and give some shape to my hopes. These images are what my life looks and feels like. That makes it the most important art I will ever see, just as anyone else’s art should be their life’s most valuable expression of creativity; I hope to find my way out of this mess. I just graduated with a Masters in Biology, and hoped to head to Africa where I would work in the bush then take care of my art and literary ambitions as I collected source material from the wild. Now, well, with this fatigue, sometimes art’s all I can do.
Maybe this will resonate with others, and they will see we are in this wilderness together
