Artist Rithika Merchant's new series, Luna Tabulatorum, tell a story inspired by the moon. In the paintings human-like figures, animals, plant life, and other strange beings interact in symbolic rituals that evoke both religious and folk art tradition as well as the work of painters like Frida Khalo. Myths and Folklore inform a lot of the imagery in Luna Tabulatorum and Rithika is drawn to the fact that moon has played a significant role in the stories of gods, creation and the universe in ancient cultures from Greece to India. 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 woman and femininity are portrayed in art and mythology.
