The silk screen method originated centuries before the present day and the growing enthusiasm for it now testifies to its rich artistic possibilities. Lucas Irwin has gone one better by taking these possibilities and applying them to a pictorial scheme that was once a notable feature of medieval art. A triptych is traditionally a work on three connected panels, the right and left ones giving a winged sensibility to the work as a whole. Irwin, however, has given Transparent Radiation an additional element. The bottom half of the work is one fluid continuation of color and line; the upper half (no less energized) presents to the eye a trio of geometric images independent of the lower half and from themselves. This duality works - and gives a surprising balance to the piece as a whole.– Robert de Valle
