What a Fox!

As a creature that waits for the cloak of darkness to make an appearance, a vibrant red fox on the prowl is a rare sight indeed. Inspired by the fox's elusive nature despite its eye-catching coat, Dolan Geiman created this stunning collage from zig-zag cuts of various pieces of paper. Geiman constructs the entire animal, from his expressive face to his swishy tail, using carefully cut pieces of sheet music, magazine spreads, and newspaper clippings to add depth and dimensionality to his fox's fiery fur.

Alluding to his muse's mysterious nature, Dolan's portrait is accompanied by the phrase "Le renard roux est un esprit à jamais" ("The red fox is a spirit forever").

Each box print edition is a refined reproduction of an original Dolan Geiman artwork that has been digitally printed directly onto a wood panel. Limited edition of 750. Signed and numbered on the back. A ready-to-hang print alternative. Made in Chicago, Illinois.
