  • Catalogue Essay

    ...artworks must have more than one side or presence. I find high erotic content in things iridescent, sparkling, fragile, sharp, oily, hairy, pimply, fluffy, dendritic, elastic, pulsating. I love mirrors, shadows, vortexes, lightning, razzle-dazzle, twistedness, and nausea, but all of these things with control.
    Lucas Samaras: Boxes, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, 1971
