This project is an indirect response to the artist David Raymond Conroy’s residency at Seventeen gallery - Retail Space'
Displayed works appear to be in progress, allowing manufactured artefacts to become open, honest and independent narratives themselves.
In the context of this exhibition, which probes the concept of the retail world itself, McVetis’s piece strictly reminds us of all aspects related to time and particularly to speed. For this show, his work exposes intricately hand-made individual stitches as if marking the time it takes to make the piece as opposed to the current speedy wholesale retail.
The intimate process of making is centre stage. Displayed in front, the tools used by the artist in his process.
