On Eli Baxter and Inner Tubes

eli-baxter-detail

Recently, I was crossing the western pond and picked up the in-flight magazine. One article and its associated photo caught my attention. Picture a cluster of black shiny rosettes hanging from what appears to be black shiny cord next to the title “Rubber Soul.” It was other-worldly and fascinating. I was curious and read on.

The article introduces artist Eli Baxter and her concept of reusing bicycle inner tubes as art. The description of Eli “twisting, wrapping and shredding, weaving, slicing and polishing” paints a picture nearly as intriguing as the art itself.
