The Process

This piece was a particular challenge in intricate collage work inspired by the great art of quilting. Mama Made began with an underlay of vintage papers affixed to a wood panel, painted over in a less opaque grey as not to distract from the intricacy of the paper collage. The rest of the collage artwork was composed entirely of vintage papers, searched, sorted and selected for the perfect color composition. The triangles in the lady’s dress were all hand-cut with regular scissors in a repeating pattern reminiscent of fabric scraps.

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.
