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.

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.
