Show Statement

Gallery 934 presents “Don’t You Feel At Home,” a group show featuring projects in a range of media that explore the boundaries of physical and psychological place. Themes of first-generation identity and experience, climate anxiety, and forced solitude come together in this exhibition to create a mixed sensation of loneliness and connectivity, and an experience of moving through worlds. Claire Flath (Cincinnati, OH), depicts man-made disasters through paint to capture the conflict and heartbreak of these times. Panagiota Kourniotis (Columbus, OH) weaves together plant symbolism, mythology, women’s history, and the hues of Mediterranean culture within her work. Really Large Numbers (Julia Oldham of Eugene, OR and Chad Stayrook of Brooklyn, NY) combine large scale sculpture and video installation to create immersive science fiction environments. The exhibition opens on Saturday, January 20 from 7-10 PM and runs through February 10. Gallery hours: Saturday, 12-3 PM.

About the Artists

Claire Flath, located in Cincinnati, OH, uses paint and other media to reflect on human ecology. By using color, light, and imagery, she reveals to her audience the range of emotions hidden in the world around us. She believes that landscapes can show just as much depth as a traditional portrait, and that they reveal the complex relationship between humanity and nature.

About the Artists cont.

Panagiota Kourniotis is a born and raised New Englander and first-generation Greek American whose family hails from Crete and the Peloponnese. Within her work, she weaves together plant symbolism, mythology, women’s history, and the hues of Mediterranean culture.

Panagiota’s work has been previously exhibited at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center, John Glenn International Airport, Blockfort Gallery and Studios, Wild Goose Creative, and more.

When not creating art or working within the arts, Panagiota enjoys road trips, testing new recipes, and spoiling her senior shelter cat Mara.

Really Large Numbers (Julia Oldham and Chad Stayrook) create immersive installations that imagine speculative future worlds. Integrating both in-depth scientific research and fantastical invention, they build playful narratives that are at the heart of their multimedia environments, which include large-scale sculptural elements, sound and digital media. The two artists work remotely for most of the year, exchanging blueprints, scripts, and sketches, and they come together to realize projects in person in residencies and art spaces. Projects by Really Large Numbers have been exhibited at Smack Mellon in Brooklyn NY; 125 Maiden Lane in New York, NY; Hudson Valley MOCA in Peekskill, NY; Emerson Dorsch Gallery in Miami, FL; VisArts in Rockville, MD; and in the SPRING/BREAK Art Show in New York. Their work has been supported by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Artists Alliance Inc., Residency Unlimited, and the Oregon Arts Commission. Oldham earned an MFA from the University of Chicago and a BA in art history from Saint Mary’s College of Maryland. Stayrook earned an MFA from San Francisco Art Institute and a BFA from Ohio University.
