Richard McVetis studied Textiles at The Royal College of Art (2006 - 08) and Embroidery at the Manchester School of Art (2002 - 05). His work reflects a preoccupation with process and its ritualistic and repetitive nature.

Using a limited vocabulary of mark making, he explores the subtle differences that emerge within the repetition process. Mapping out space and form are central themes in McVetis' work. There is a simplicity to the work with black line on white ground in most of his pieces; the effect is that of drawing with the added weight of interwoven tactility, wholeness and permanence.

Units of time
A series of hand embroidered cubes exploring the passage of time. The title of each cube refers to the number of hours and minutes spent stitching each piece. This project seeks to visualize and make time a tactile and tangible object.

Hand stitched on wool. 6 x 6 x 6 cm ea.
