Phoenix Airport Museum exhibition
"Cast and Flame: Glass Art by Jennifer Caldwell and Jason Chakravarty"
Terminal 4, level 2 near center in two display cases
Glass is a versatile material with the distinctive ability to be manipulated in amazing ways. Its possibilities and surprises as an art form increase exponentially in the hands of two artists working collaboratively. Arizona artist couple Jennifer Caldwell and Jason Chakravarty, under the name JC Squared, combine their talents, ideas and individual expertise to discover new and diverse ways of creating with glass.
Caldwell and Chakravarty, self-defined as “process junkies,” utilize a full spectrum of both hot and cold working techniques to cast, torch, blow, print, grind, cut and blend glass. Their shared personal observations, life experiences and travel fuel the flame of their work. Narrative driven sculptures that explore the parallel relationships between humans and bees, and vessels that reveal hidden underwater worlds offer a point of departure for the viewer to imagine realities different from their own.
This exhibition presents glass artworks that are both playful in their application and nostalgic in their subject matter. Holding memories unique to the artists, they provide a glimpse into their lives and the ways they view the world. From barnacle covered buoys to busy bees, Caldwell and Chakravarty creatively push the boundaries of what glass can become.
