re:Tyre-Meant – Francis van Hout

In re:Tyre-Meant Francis van Hout abstracts the pattern, depth and weave of tyre tread. These meticulously painted artworks play with our relationship to the tyre in terms of its visual and environmental impact. The weave and movement of the patterns within the pieces are also drawn from van Hout’s father’s trade as a carpet maker, pop art history and Māori art. Van Hout describes the artworks as pieces of himself. The paintings carry both his humour and environmental anxieties.
