In Orbit - Rachel Garrard & Rithika Merchant

June 5, 2021

Intricate, mythical scenes populated with winged women and mystical symbols appear lush and vibrant alongside subtle, geometric forms painted in earthy, faded hues on textured linen. The latest duo exhibition at Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, Berlin entitled In Orbit brings together the works of Indian artist Rithika Merchant, whose practice explores ancient sto- ries and symbolism that transcend cultural and geographical boundaries, with British artist Rachel Garrard’s more abstract forms that seek to capture different realms of conscious- ness.
