Although American artist Lucas Samaras?s reputation rests primarily on his sculptures and photographs, he is also a remarkable draftsman who has produced a considerable body of work on paper throughout his career. Attracted to pastel for its bright colors and shimmering surface? and because it was an unfashionable medium during the heyday of Abstract Expressionist painting? Samaras began working in pastel in the 1950s and returned to it at various periods during the following 25 years. The publication features many of Samaras?s favorite subjects: still lifes, interiors, self-portraits, and abstract compositions. With their dreamlike imagery, erotic suggestion, and mystical overtones, Samaras?s pastels express on an intimate scale his moods and mental states throughout the first three decades of his career.00Exhibition: Morgan Library & Museum, NYC, USA (06.05.-21.08.2016)

Lucas Samaras : boxes by Hannah Barton( Visual )

in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lucas Samaras: boxes is the definitive exploration of the artist’s iconic, mixed media series, a total of 295 artworks begun in the early 1960s. Samaras’s boxes delve into the subject of the self, allowing viewers access into the artist’s mind through personal and found objects or manipulated self-portraits, which are sometimes guarded by pins, razor blades, or broken glass. In addition, many works are distortions of the form of the box itself, with playful multi-colored appendages or constructions made entirely of chicken wire. Also included are related room-sized installations, such as the artist’s celebrated Mirrored Room (1966)
