I believe this is best accessed on the site directly by following this link: FOCI Arts – Art and Athletics 4
but I have also included this version below for those that just happen across my site willy-nilly….
Introduction by Ray Evanoff
One of the parallels between athletics and art is that both are personal practices. The daily endeavors of such practice become ritualized over time. The repetitive work therein becomes a study of one’s self, forming inroads to unarticulated regions. These regions may be defined or clarified or altered or reflected by the practices that illuminate them. Athletic and artistic practice may thus connect with other parts of life.
Here artist Angela Guyton branches both outward and inward from her physical practice, charting regions along the way that are both personal and broadly applicable. Her’s is a reflection on the body as medium for the insubstantial but intensely significant. She is an overlap between athlete and artist.
