Today I went to the Metropolitan Museum to check out a small exhibition of works by a modern painter who I was unfamiliar with. Lucas Samaras: Offerings from a Restless Soul filled two rooms, mostly with small works on paper, although there were sculptures and mixed media as well. I was drawn to many of the pastels, as well as some paper cuttings and pen and ink drawings. But for the most part I was not very excited by this show. Although I had never seen any of it before, the work had a very familiar feel.
