In this newest version of Mother Nature with Fawn, I was able to incorporate much of the story’s imagery in the intricate paper collage. Look closely to see a map of the night sky in the dragonfly’s wings, its constellations repeated in Mother Nature's garb. Like all collages, this one began with an underlay of vintage papers affixed to a wood panel and whitewashed with acrylic paint. I crafted the cornucopia of nature surrounding this female icon by hand-cutting a vast array of vintage papers and finished the piece with a handmade frame assembled from salvaged tin.
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.
