Artist Claire Flath (b. 1998) is located in Cincinnati, Ohio. Having graduated with her BFA in the beginnings of the pandemic, her style reacts to the imagery, symbolism, and the ever shifting global media of this post-Covid world. Her work is structured into series that tackle individual themes, from American politics, or commentary on modern domesticity, to environmentalism; all are related to one another through an underlying focus on the relationship between the individual and the global. Through this organized approach, the works are able to communicate with one another in the series: exploring the micro perspectives of one sub-topic, and the macro conversation that explores the complexity of modern life. 

In these series, she explores not only theme but material. Flath selects media that coincide with the imagery of the theme: American domesticity/politics lends itself to textile work such as embroidery or quilting, works that focus on the individual perspective should be explored in the solitary act of painting. Through her works, Flath aims to start a conversation, engaging the audience to explore questions that have no simple answers.
