Synopsis

One minute stop motion artwork records the initial process of making Captured Moments. This was recorded by McEvoy during her 2023 residency in Tyrone Guthrie Centre

Concept & Technique

Captured Moments I & II were made in response to Vera McEvoy's time spent in the Froebel Department of Primary and Early Childhood Education, as Artist in Residence (YPCE 2022-23) supported by the Arts Council of Ireland. These are large scale, back lit, artworks in deep frames - Medium: drawing on tan coloured 283gm card, perforations made using a scribe. Dimensions Captured Moments I: w. 1220mm × h. 920mm x d. 60mm. Captured Moments II: w. 920 mm × h. 1220mm x d. 60mm. Vera has researched Froebelian theory and practice extensively during her residency and Froebel 'occupations' which include sewing and paper perforation, which have informed these works. Thank you to Froebel Department staff and students, The Arts Council of Ireland and composer Greg Sinclair.
