‘Salvage’ : Three young Ilonggo artists find beauty in scrap pieces of wood

“Perception of Insanity“ by Jun Orland Espinosa

“We chose ‘Salvage’ as our title because of its great impact,” Jeanroll told Panay News.  “What may first come to mind is an act of killing, [but seeing our pieces] you may begin to realize that [through our art] we aim to rescue something from complete destruction.”

Columbia Mammoth Skeleton for Moses Lake Museum and Art Center. I was commissioned by Pacific Studio to create a life-sized Columbia Mammoth skeleton for the new Moses Lake Museum and Art Center in Washington. The resulting sculpture is made from 95% recycled materilas, mostly old farm equipment and agricultural tools.

Daily Dolan Geiman – Contemporary Art with a Southern Accent

Antlers are a recent obsession of a friend of ours. Dolan Geiman gives us the salvage version – not bad we thinks!

Antlers (living room): a pair of eco-friendly red stag antlers (the antlers are cut from wood) are wrapped in vintage French army straps, parachute cord, catfish trotlines pulled from Texas rivers, and bailing twine. The leaves are hand cut from peach buckets salvaged from a friend’s Georgia plantation.

Dolan Geiman is a nationally recognized mixed media artist creating original paintings, collages, constructions, and limited-edition reproductions. Produced from salvaged wood, found objects, and other recycled materials, Geiman’s eco-friendly artwork emerges from a folk art tradition infused with a contemporary, urban style.
