Process

Process

Dolan's roots in screen-printing peek through in this unique mixed media work, one of several in a series celebrating the unsung heroes of the West.

Tail Light Cocktail blends metal with painting, ink transfer with assemblage, and good old-fashioned storytelling from a technicolor film to bring this mysterious character to life. In the very materials, a narrative exists, inviting us - the observers - to pay attention to what our particular life experience causes us to notice first.

Dolan repurposed a vintage cola sign and reclaimed farm fencing, along with screen-printed advertisements from decades-old magazines, to layer in the nuance of a man on the move -- one who is relaxing with a familiar but decidedly fictional beer in his hand.
