Robert Irwin, 1º 2 º 3 º 4º

Robert Irwin is an artist that feels quintessentially Californian. The sense of space in the piece '1º 2 º 3 º 4º', for instance, feels like something that could only have come from a place with unlimited space, unlimited light, unlimited potential.

I love Robert Irwin for the same visceral reasons I love Olafur Eliasson, but whereas Eliasson needs to painstakingly create the illusion of space and light, Irwin has all his materials at his fingertips!
