Hand carved tire

15 inches in diameter

In the piece Baseline a traditional Mexican tile pattern has been carved into a Goodyear tire. The piece examines what it means to be feminine in masculine spaces, and what it means to be a person of color in a setting with a history of racism and white supremacy. The tire used in this project belonged to Danny Suárez, the first Mexican NASCAR driver to compete in the Cup series.
