Lead Picture This(Fly Free)(2018)Nadina Mackie Jackson
12' mobile made with the cards after the bird images were cut out for FLY FREE, double sided postcards of Rey Ray paintings, again, amazingly difficult to photograph the delicately moving art! - original piece by Nadina Mackie Jackson In 2008, I bought two plane tickets for myself and Guy Few, and we flew to San Francisco to edit our second concerto album, Romanza. We spent 4 days in the studio of recording engineer David Bowles of Swineshead Productions LLC in Berkley, CA. When the editing was finished, we headed into SF to eat things, buy stupid hats and look at art. I was really inspired by the art of Rex Ray which was on exhibit. I bought a book about him and a big pack of postcards. carried the postcards for 9 years, through 3 house sales and moves, one divorce, the death of both my parents and a several more recording projects. When sorting out boxes when I moved to the church studio in Drayton, I found the fabulous postcards and made two very long, double-sided mobiles. The first one is my basic motif of a flying bird. I used very strong, thin nylon string that I had inherited from my father who had used it for creating fish nets (for catching food, not for making stockings) when he was sailing to Hawaii on a boat he built himself. Yes, his story might be more interesting. For the cut out birds (Fly Free) (Lot #129), I cut birds from two postcards and glued them one at a time, always referring to a hanging point to make sure they were level. The cardstock is good quality, but all papers need to be heavily weighted to dry straight and true, so I did one bird at a time, allowing a minimum of 12 hours to dry for each. In the end, there were 11 birds spaced on the string, and when hung, they turn slowly in different directions. In the daytime, they catch the sun and briefly flash; at night, they cast poetic shadows. I used the remaining postcards to make Picture This (Fly Free), which is another, shorter mobile (ca. 7 feet). This mobile uses two parallel support strings which are attached to a carved willow twig at the top. To create this mobile, I put equidistant pins into each end of the work table, then secured them for the duration of the creation process. I alternated the flying direction of each bird on the totemic mobile and spaced them evenly. There are 10 images on the mobile.
