Dolan Geiman - a collage

Dolan Geiman is a mixed media artist born in 1977 in Hermitage, Virginia. He graduated with a BFA concentrating in sculpture, printmaking, and biology. Dolan creates stunning paper collages, original panel paintings, constructions, and limited-edition reproductions. Since childhood, Geiman has been collecting found materials, scraps from old textbooks and nature magazines, metal ornaments, wooden nickels, handwritten civil war love letters, etc. All these things find their way into his work which emerges from a folk art tradition infused with a contemporary, urban style. The farm, music, Americana, nature, flora and fauna are recurring themes of these creations. The artist is able to create an artwork that introduces a modern aesthetic while remaining true to its rustic roots.
