About the Artist:
Hannah Yata works with the techniques and materials of the old masters. Her psychedelic wonderlands are whimsical and playful at first but at second glance they burst with resonance and symbolism creating an atmosphere that is both playful and devouring. Yata’s paintings have become her own story about witnessing a coming of age for women, spirituality, and ecological revolution. Confrontational yet inviting, her figures and nature-based psychedelic language are a trip to inspire the viewer to see the world through new eyes. Yata plays with the mythos and the female form as an extension to nature. She references the story of creation and questions the reality or surreality of the stories that shape our world. Deeply inspired by Paleolithic and Neolithic art, she weaves these motifs and symbols into her work to celebrate the cycles of nature and pagan imagery that have been demonized by society. As our civilization progresses toward an ever-industrialized world, her work is full of nostalgic reverence and admiration to the world that gave us life.
