Head In The Clouds


Mesa Arts Museum presents Head in The Clouds, a two person collaborative solo exhibition of narrative driven sculptural glass created by Jennifer Caldwell and Jason Chakravarty. The exhibition, on display January 15-April 3, 2022, features two site specific installations and a handful of sculptures. 

Head in The Clouds encompasses the overshadowing cognitive weight felt during the pandemic. For Jennifer and Jason, the pandemic reprogrammed the normal yet ever changing daily cues which fed their artwork. The artists narrative backdrop which directly influences their sculptural glass has often been illustrated through the extensive and regularity of traveling globally to lecture and discuss the field of glass, participating in artist residencies, and teaching short intensive workshops. The onset of the pandemic cancelled all upcoming and scheduled events.


The artists considered the motivation to create. During a pandemic, who is their audience? From a business standpoint, who is investing in art? As well as, now that they were no longer traveling where do the ideas come from?


Head In the Clouds. The artists commitment and resiliency for creating art, redirected the focus of their narrative to a romantic regurgitation of optimistic fiction.
