Product story

‘There is one particular movement that some small birds make which can only be described as a drop,’ writes Tess Jaray. ‘It is not flight, because their wings are closed. It is not quite falling, because that seems uncontrolled, and their drop is perfectly controlled. It is a little as though they have the finest of invisible strings attached to ensure the lightest of landings...’ The silkscreen Drop, Yellow is one of a series of images created by Jaray in response to this ‘transient moment’ she views around the bird table that gives her ‘intense pleasure’.
