About Allen Leper


Allen Hampton was born in Birmingham, Alabama. He attained a Master’s degree in Fine Arts from the University of South Florida in the summer of 2008. Allen has exhibited in much of the United States, as well as overseas.

Allen describes his work by saying, “I constantly fight with myself, struggling for progression through confusion and misunderstanding. Pig blood, animals and their leftover limbs, and many other mediums that I utilize are important in that they were at one time imperative to the sustaining of life in a living being, but are now devoid of all use. They occupy a space in limbo, somewhere between functionality and futility, mirroring my own views of myself and my place in society. The eclectic nature of the physical presentation of these pieces speaks to a lack of overall dissatisfaction and a constant need for change in hopes of personal contentment. By using these simultaneous dichotomies as surrogates for myself, I hope to look objectively at my conscious actions as well as my subconscious mind.”.
