In Echoing Factors, Booker’s use of pattern, texture, and subtle variations in color creates an expressive, abstract sculptural relief. A raw explosion of energy emanates from her clever orchestration of bent, looped, and layered tires creating poetic rhythms of swirling forms. Booker describes her approach to her work as being: “Like a painter having a palette, my palette is the textures of the treads, the fibers from discarded materials, and tires that I use to create varied effects.”
