Blair Chivers is a Canadian artist whose work explores power; particularly the power of the mind and emotion. For Chivers, engaging with art can stimulate ideas, broaden perspectives, and increase our sense of possibility. The words and imagery that Chivers uses are designed to inspire contemplation. “Life is Great”. “What you feel most you attract”. “Never never never give up”. “You’ll see it when you believe it”. One key to understanding the power of the creative mind lies not in the meaning of the words but in how they feel and resonate. Chivers’ art doesn’t aim to shift the viewer’s mood, but rather to offer the opportunity to engage with art while feeling good. That’s playing with power! Art can be an effective amplifier, but the source of the power lies within the viewer.

The Jet Windows are the Birkin bags of the artist Blair Chivers. They are part of the conversation in his work about making the art world more accessible and democratic. In this case, it's about how most visual art can never be democratic. By its nature, art is expensive to make and own due to its size, uniqueness, and the costs of material, transportation, and labor. Similar to private jets. Private jets can be a metaphor for the art world - exclusive, expensive and mysterious to most people. The idea of a more accessible and democratic art world is still a revolutionary idea today. Its a wild and disruptive idea, like Fauvism was or like Baudelaire’s volume of poetry and Matisse’s paintings were at a time in history.
