Sneak Peek! Dolan Geiman & Shelley Kommers!
We're so excited to be receiving a bunch of Dolan Geiman's pieces this week. If you don't know his folk-pop work, you will be in for a treat. Dolan's work is "green" in the truest sense as he utilizes salvaged wood for many of his constructions. He also creates beautiful collage paintings with eco-friendly materials. Hailing from the South (though currently residing in Chicago) Dolan's work evokes that weathered rural aesthetic familiar to folk art. At the same time uses screenprinting and text the way any street artist worth his weight in salt would. The results have made Dolan a favorite in the Art & Design blog world, spotlighted by the likes of Design*Sponge, Decor8 and Indie Fixx. Our upcoming exhibition pairs Dolan's work with another emerging artist, L.A. based Shelley Kommers, whose intimate collages are drool-worthy. She too chooses found and recycled materials as the core of her work. Old letters, photos, travel guides, newspapers and more are cut and re- constructed, painted and drawn over. The resulting works are a cohesive blend of color, pattern, composition and concept. Join us on Friday February 27th from 6-8:30 p.m. as we celebrate the works of these two fabulous artists!
