About

Richard McVetis is a London based artist. McVetis uses a range of media including drawing, installation and textiles to explore our perception of space and time. His minimalist work is an endless exploration, not just of form but of the reclamation and potential of process and repetition within stitch.

McVetis’ practice centres on the use of hand embroidery and reflects a preoccupation with the repetitive nature of process, exploring the subtle differences that emerge through ritualistic and habitual making. In addition, the mapping of space and marking time and form are central themes. McVetis explores the way time and place are felt, experienced and constructed. Ideas are often developed in response to, or created specifically to a moment, visualising and making this a tactile and tangible object. The pieces created explore how objects, materials and places, through the action of hands, bear witness to the passing of time, of the mundane and monotonous regularity of everyday existence.
