Jerrin Wagstaff is an artist based in both Salt Lake City, Utah and Los Angeles, California. Wagstaff received his Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from Brigham Young University and his Master’s of Fine Arts from California State University. His work explores how American identity has been shaped by the idealized American West. As he constructs and reimagines visuals from Romantic imagery, he employs vibrant, saturated colors, abstraction, and unexpected shifts in space and perspective. Wagstaff's paintings draw the viewer into the spectacle of the landscape – all alone, exploring an undiscovered country.
