Sampson was a cop and sketch artist in Newark for almost 20 years but experienced a kind of psychic break when one of his children died. Since then he's accumulated thrift-store and trash objects into ultra-signifying memorials to family members and friends, as well as more allegorical works that address social issues such as the tabletop "The Treaty of Tordesillas."
