Rithika is a contemporary visual artist from Mumbai. Her nomadic practice situates her between her home in India and the UK.
Her practice draws from the personal, mythological, and scientific to navigate the mystical spaces within our human entanglements. Foregrounding issues around hybridity, displacement, futurity, and femininity, her painted worlds become sacred spaces holding events where boundaries are transgressed, and transformations are imminent. These imagined worlds propose interstellar realities, occupied by potent psychological tropes with protagonists who speak in non-verbal metaphors, as well as other more-than-human agencies intricately woven together in ritualized dynamism. Her work highlights the nature of companionship, recovery and opens up allegorical possibilities of a future that goes beyond apocalypse as an endpoint.
