Credited with making works of art that don’t announce themselves as such, Robert Irwin is perhaps best known for the Getty Gardens in Los Angeles, an ever-changing, site-specific installation that explores the interplay between light, flora, and water. Irwin, an innovator in the Light and Space movement, began his career as a painter and turned to installation as a means of disposing with medium and object altogether. Irwin’s installations sometimes result from the elimination of forms from a space, such as his removal of window panes at San Diego’s Museum of Contemporary Art to alter the experience of being in the gallery.
