Hannah Yata ‘Exile’ @ Phaneros Gallery

Prepare yourself to enter into the surreal world of colour and strange delights in Hannah Yata’s upcoming solo show at Phaneros Art Gallery.

These pieces are undeniably some of Hannah’s most interesting and incredible pieces. Staying true to the always recognisable characteristic of her older works and narration of her pieces, she has explored, for this show the ‘story of Adam and Eve and their expulsion from the sacred garden and the great divorce that happened between humans and their relationship to the earth.’

These hypnotising paintings are full of mystical sensuality, an exploration that takes us deep into forest climates and unseen worlds, a close up perspective of nature adorned and presented in her full costume. Almost as though we, as humans are too small to appreciate the vastness and beauty hidden within….but if we could for a moment get a glimpse of her true face… then perhaps this what we would see. Take the opportunity to rest inside nature’s magic while the exhibition in on view from April 28 – May 26, 2018.

Press Release:

NEVADA CITY, CA – April 28 to May 26, 2018. A new body of work debuts at Phaneros Art Gallery by artist Hannah Yata. Her work delves into the consciousness of what the feminine and its place in this industrial age. Yata’s work is best known for her hypnotizing masks, sensuous forms, and electrifying colors.

Hannah Yata’s new body of work debuts this April at Phaneros Gallery in Nevada City, California. Her paintings continue to examine the psychology of modern-day society and it’s relationship to nature. “Exile” reflects on the story of Adam and Eve and their expulsion from the sacred garden and the great divorce that happened between humans and their relationship to the earth. She considers the mythos of this exile as not only human-made but also contemplates how ancient matriarchal societies were transformed by demonizing its beliefs and its symbolic elements. She challenges this demonization as ultimately a split in our psyche, a fear that imbalances our very being and our relationship to the feminine earth. Archetypes of this old religion are again raised in her work to question the tradition of heroes that center around human, male leaders. “Exile” looks back to the creative, fertile force of the feminine, the memory of the matriarch, and the celebration of the Mother.

About Author

Kylie Dexter was born (and is currently living with her gorgeous boys, Rob and Zen)  in Melbourne, Australia. Inspired by Pop Surrealism and the New Contemporary Art movement  she began collecting original works and sculptures in the mid 90's. Since then her collection has grown to epic proportions. She has had an obsession with art from a young age and has an eye for emerging artists, and a deep understanding of the narrative the artist is trying to portray. She believes art can change the way people think and reach the deepest part of their psyches. Kylie has faith in art's ability to create an energy to express and reflect the  deep symbolism and stories that are untouchable in normal reality. She also has a  heartfelt connection to music and is a self-taught artist who brings needle felting to life via her dolls that are sold and shown around the world. With an enthusiastic addiction for writing about art, talking about art, looking at art and making art, what better place to be, surrounded by what you love! I feel passionate that Beautiful Bizarre Magazine raises the profile of up and coming artists, supports those already in the industry and contributes positively to galleries who share a common goal; to keep art alive and flowing, to keep people creating and more importantly keep people collecting and expressing themselves via the images on their walls. .
