Hannah Yata‘s paintings explore both nature and the subconcious, with vivid, vibrant scenes. The work can feel both romantic and and allegorical, with a recent set of works embodying both in “Exile” at Phaneros Gallery in Nevada City, Calif. This body of work explores the story of Adam and Eve in a way true to Yata’s form. Yata was recently featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 45.
“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,” the gallery said. “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.”
