From the NY Times: "Hilton Kramer's observation of long ago that there lurked at the core of Mr. Samaras's work ''the emotions of a heartless adolescent and the ideas of a brilliant decorative mind'' still holds true, although the heartlessness now looks more like a kind of irresponsibility. This may be what enables him to remain the ''embodiment of imagination,'' as a museum curator recently characterized him.
