We are just beginning to discover the limitless potential of the tyre. From the wheel of life came the tyre of the automobile, a male symbol of power. But in its regenerative capacity to sustain the world, the tyre is a female symbol.

Experiments are currently underway to regenerate tyres into playing fields for children and sportspeople, to make bricks for houses and retaining walls for reticulation. This is just the beginning. Inevitably, the wheel of life rolls along the path of the creativity and regeneration. In the 21st century, the tyre’s tread will imprint on the path of sustainable modernity.

This picture expresses the feminine road of regeneration imprinted with the tyre’s tread. The road is deep, endless, winding in surprising twists and we just don’t know what further beauty lies around the corner.

O! and about my spelling. I come from The Land Down-under, and we spell tyre with a ???y, not an i. Keep the tread of diversity rolling!

About the Artist

Art Exhibitions

Two years ago Nita Jawary gave up a full-time university career in communication to pursue a career in art and writing. She has not looked back.

Nita has since had two major solo exhibitions and has participated in six joint exhibitions. Her work is varied and expresses both a love of nature and an ideology of fair play.

While currently working on illustrations for her forthcoming book, Nita is also exploring the possibilities of digital art.
