No Strings Attached

Featuring song-worthy medley of hand-plucked curios, Dolan Geiman's unique ode to the guitar is bound to strum up conversation wherever you decide to display it. Dolan constructs a shapely silhouette of a guitar and two tulips from a piece of reclaimed wood, and then uses vintage, found objects—ranging from rulers, to wall paper, to book covers, to bannister spindles—to fill the shape with harmonious color and texture. Banded together, these rescued and remixed fragments make this instrument and its surrounding blooms sing! Handmade in Chicago.

Dolan Geiman is a nationally recognized mixed media artist known for his Contemporary Art with a Southern Accent. Born and raised in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, Dolan Geiman’s formative years were defined by outdoor adventures in his bucolic surroundings. Twenty-plus years later, the flora and fauna, found curiosities, and fading Appalachian culture still define Geiman’s contemporary-folk creations. Trained in printmaking and sculpture, Geiman’s mediums span painting, collage, silk screen, drawing, and 3-D assemblage. An advocate for green design and sustainable business, Geiman and his wife Ali Marie currently work from a green warehouse in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood.
