The Moon Devours Her Children, 2015 | 50 x 70 cms | Gouache and Ink on Paper
Artist Rithika Merchant’s new series, Luna Tabulatorum, tells a story inspired by the moon. Myths and Folklore inform a lot of the imagery in the project and Rithika is drawn to the significant role the moon has played in the stories of gods, creation and the universe in ancient cultures. Rithika’s series is on view now at Stephen Romano Gallery in Bushwick, and last week Rithika joined me via Skype from Barcelona to talk about her work, the moon, and ways that women and femininity are portrayed in art and mythology.
