The Process

This gal was created using vintage and found metal I gathered up from all over the West and Southwest. I typically scavenge through old abandoned barns and ranches, even old dumps in the desert that have been sun bleached and windblown. I bring these scavenged materials back to my studio and start hand-cutting the metal with tin snips and metal shears, affixing each individually cut piece onto a wooden background to create the finished sculpture. This series of Vaqueras are inspired by Mexican and Western folklore, each of the gals serving as an inspirational badass protector for your home or ranch.

The Story

I am fascinated by the creatures of the night. I love their mystery, how they find you in the darkness and flicker away before you can decide exactly with whom you have crossed paths. I love that they are drawn to the light and love that they are fearless in navigating the darkness. Fearless, fearless, fearless: something to shine a light on, indeed. Ever-protective, ever-commanding, this newest Vaquera in the series, Night Wing, offers a watchful eye over your home or cabin at any hour, day or night.

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.
