The Blackening and The Blooming, 2023 , Oil on canvas, 80 x 1.5 x 104 inches

Hannah Yata focuses her work on celebrating the forces of life and varying cycles of death, decay and rebirth. Through painting female figures and psychedelic environments, Yata addresses the demonization of the feminine by patriarchal societies. Reaching back to nature-based religions originating in the Paleolithic Era, Yata's scenes intertwine animals, totems and archetypes steeped in archaic symbolism. The surreal, the grotesque, the romantic and nature interplay to create exhilarating and mind-bending dreamscapes.
