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

Inspired by travels throughout the Southwest and my love for stories rich with larger-than-life characters, this large-scale work was created with thousands of vintage papers hand-cut into individual pieces and collaged to wood. The background is hand-painted in acrylic with distressing techniques I've developed over the years. Finished with one of my signature handmade, salvaged tin frames only available with original collages.

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.
