The Process

Each Dolan Geiman collage is crafted from hand-cut vintage papers sourced over decades of exploration and careful categorizing, held dearly until the perfect piece arrives to claim their colors and texture.

The Story

Have you ever come across a photo or a face and felt like you know someone, even though your mind tells you it is impossible you could? As this piece came together, I felt more and more like she might be someone I knew. Perhaps the details in her face, or the unique palette of her outfit that seemed to come together out of the ether, but this gal for a reason I cannot explain felt like a long-lost friend.

I consider myself lucky to cross paths with some of the most incredibly interesting humans, be it the helpful (and secretly very talented) stranger in a chance encounter while trying to find the perfect entrance to mountain trail, or while nose-deep in a new book at a bookstore after hours of searching for the right tome, only to accidentally run into its author. In real life or as the papers unfold, I am lucky to find these interesting humans. They bring stories and depth and intrigue, and I am happy to capture some of their essences in works like this.

Understanding Limited Series

Each work in Dolan Geiman’s portfolio is unique and hand-crafted. Some are one-of-a-kind pieces while others are reiterations of a recurring theme, denoted as Limited Series throughout the site.

Each piece in a Limited Series is created with a inimitable collection of found materials so that no two are exactly alike. Iterations will vary slightly in color, pattern, typography and frame; each is crafted in a limited quantity and without a predetermined edition numbering.
