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

Vaquera (Indigo) with Longhorn is constructed from hand-cut papers on wood panel. All of the papers are vintage, dating from the late 1800s through 1950s/1960s, and selected because of their printed color. When creating these works, I glean through vintage magazines, old ticket stubs, comic books, posters, calendars, and old maps, just to name a few sources. Once I have a good stockpile of these materials, I cut and layer them to create the imagery. Each little piece, including the smallest detail in her hat, is hand cut with scissors.

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.
