In “Way Out West” at L&M Arts, Robert Irwin was concerned with “light,” illumination, and chance combinations of color. Nine related, but independent works rendered in fluorescent light coalesced in an installation that responded to its site, but could exist in any space, including, Irwin says, the domestic. The gallery checklist describes the materials used for each piece as “Light + Shadow + Reflection + Color,” which perfectly describes what we see and what it is. “Way Out West” merged Irwin’s interests in playing the odds with his interests in light, color, and rhythm. …see the entire review in the print version of October’s Sculpture magazine.
