Western Americana Collages by Dolan Geiman

dolan1


I'm always infatuated with collages.
I guess it's because I have an appreciation of the
time consuming steps of this particular art form:
not only sketching the subject, but also
finding and collecting the materials
and piecing it all together.

Dolan Geiman is a true master of mixed media collages.
His creations are western Americana, folk art inspired.

He gathers vintage ephemera, and scraps of discarded wood and metal,
as well as other interesting found materials,
and re-purposes them into a new life as brilliantly assembled art.
His work is very detailed; one can imagine the process as he 
meticulously selects and positions each intricate piece.

Based in Colorado, Dolan and his wife and business partner Ali Marie
traverse the country from one show to another.
