In issue #14 we explored sport from a variety of angels—from lines and numbers to the complexity of baseball. Illinois artist Cindy Lewis, takes the used equipment of hockey and baseball to create new pieces that look at sport in another way.
"Finding beauty in textures created by nature, decay and wear, I find an escape from the rigid world of business and numbers: taking inspiration not only from other artists, but also from details others may rarely notice. I find myself drawn to intricate patterns of parking lot repairs, cracked sidewalks and worn buildings, rusted metals, peeling paint, and used construction materials. Found or discarded items are often my inspiration for the day. My hope is to share with the audience the beauty I see in these easily unnoticed surfaces or items."
