Black & Blue #15, #13, #14, Kevin Sampson, 2017, porcelain, canvas, wood

Kevin Sampson, a self-taught artist and former police officer creates works that often address issues of social justice and cultural resistance. This piece made me think of the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria, whose arrivals are the subject of much debate these days.

"Detox the Ghetto by Kevin Sampson — a sculpture that looks like a headdress that borrows heavily from the Gelede masking traditions of the Yoruba — has a face that is non-traditional in that there is no opening for the eyes or mouth and brings to mind the embellishments found on Congolese Kuba helmet masks. Sampson combines these sensibilities and in using found materials, beads, toys, wood, cement, acrylic paint makes this work uniquely his own. The title is borrowed from the Newark, NJ graffiti artist, Jerry Gant, who would sprawl “detox the ghetto” on buildings across the city."

"People like Ramonita Rivera, matriarch and ambassador of the Puerto Rican Day Parade; Pedro Irizarry, a Newark ambassador with the Newark Downtown District; Kevin Blyth Sampson, a community-based artist; Yolanda Stokes, a community engagement organizer; and Eric Boston, a PSEG substation supervisor, were nominated by their neighbors and peers for outstanding contributions to the community."

Choosing Between a Folk Artist’s Story and His Work
by Seph Rodney on September 13, 2016

"Ronald Lockett believed in magic. So said sculptor Kevin Sampson during a talk in July at the American Folk Art Museum (AFAM), which is currently hosting a retrospective of Lockett’s work. The artist died in 1998 of AIDS-related pneumonia, so hearing Sampson say that Lockett believed that the objects he made with his hands had power beyond aesthetic allure makes sense. Being black and gay and male in the rural South — Bessemer, Alabama — one would have to stay under the radar, or, as Sampson put it, “keep to himself.”
