Dolan Geiman

I first discovered Dolan Gieman’s work at the Artisphere in Greenville SC, oh how I love ( and miss) that show!

Dolan’s is a self described “contemporary art with a southern twist”.

The love birds might just be my favorite- I love the birds and they are painted my favorite colors!

His website says that “His Chicago studio has come to resemble a life-size cabinet of Southern curiosities, not too dissimilar from the abandoned homesteads of his native Virginia where he has collected, or rescued, many treasures. Scraps from old textbooks and nature magazines, handwritten civil war love letters, metal ornaments, wooden nickels and other discarded ephemera find their way into his work; each item stirs nostalgia for a not-too-distant, more rural time and place Geiman identifies as home.”.

 

 

I so dig anything resembling Mexican sugar skulls! So these new collage portraits are beautiful.

An Artist AND a PICKER ya’ll?!!? Dreamy right!?I just love these deer trophies.

I love his part-collage/ part-woodwork/ all-cool approach to his work. You can check him out here, here, and here.

    • So exciting to get your comment! Isn’t the internet amazing for its ability to connect people?! You already know how much I love your work! I missed Artisphere this year because we moved to Switzerland, but South Carolina is home base so we will be back, and until then I will follow your work from the internet!
