SPIRIT-FIRE-SHAKE spotlights three artists' culture

The next artist in the exhibit, Kevin Sampson, portrays both personal adversities and historical events through his work. All of his pieces on display are mixed media sculptures, most of which display historical events.
Samson made a sculpture depicting the colonization of South America, the collapse of Wall Street and the Kent State shootings, just to name a few events. Sampson’s works are colorful, fascinating sculptures that you cannot take your eyes away from. The viewer looks at the colorful chaos, trying to interpret what is happening in the piece while pondering over how the pieces came together in the first place. The stories in Sampson’s art are worth attempting to understand.
