DESCRIPTION

Archival pigment print on handmade Himalayan paper

2020

“3 Realms” is the first release of Merriam’s Wind Pictures series, which captures the spirituality and untouched nature of Upper Mustang Nepal through earth toned landscapes at dusk. The title refers to the three realms of Buddhist cosmology, which are made up of 31 planes of existence. The paper used for these prints was handmade in Nepal and is highly textured. This preference from the artist came from his adoration of printed matter while in Nepal, citing that even government documents had a handmade quality to them.

From the artist: “Mustang became the perfect marriage of the mental and physical journeys I had been on for the last few years. An unimaginable landscape of Mars-like desert beneath the looming Himalayas... In Wind Pictures I have set out to chronicle this next step. The journey outward mirroring the journey in. As above, so below.”
