Hampden Gallery is delighted to announce the opening of Jeff Stauder
In ”I, Pilgrim” Jeff Stauder uses iconic images from American history to create a surreal, allegorical world. Motifs include a lone pilgrim, bison, crows, corn, and wood. Historical periods are conflated, and an ensuing sense of humor, confusion, and loss is communicated.
In his ongoing series "I, Pilgrim". Jeff Stauder works in a wide variety of media to explore issues of American identity. The series suggests an allegory rather than conveying a coherent narrative. The artist's intentions are that the work communicates a sense of loss, a sense of confusion, and a sense of humor.
In addition to being a professional artist, Stauder also teaches drawing, painting, foundations, and sculpture at Amherst Regional High School.
