Archival ink on handmade Khadi paper | 2023

An extension of Merriam’s series 'Rosa Mundi,' Infra Rainbow is an evocative and rare glimpse at nature’s fleeting yet breathtaking beauty. In January of 2023, Merriam returned to the big island of Hawaii to view and photograph the eruption of Kilauea — requiring long nights and endless patience. This stunning image was captured one morning on a walk along the island’s volcanic east coast, as the celestial realm provided stark contrast to the hardened black lava of the earthen cliffs. The handmade Khadi paper on which the piece is printed is meant to invoke the feeling of the land around us — rugged, black, and uneven.
