Niamh Barry, Knotted II, IRE, 2015

Niamh Barry’s Knotted II is a sculptural, illuminated expression of density through line and form.  Composed of Barry’s signature mirror-polished stainless steel rings, hand-cut glass opal tiles, and powered by dimmable LEDs, the sinuous forms wrap around one another, creating various shapes and light levels.  A dynamic work of art that perennially glows, Knotted II is experienced differently from every angle.  The uniqueness of an evolving sculpture that interacts with the viewer and its environment is what renders the artist’s work so compelling. Barry’s repertoire highlights, both literally and figuratively, the various ways by which we can interpret light and darkness, negative and positive space, and human movement.

A bespoke version of Knotted II is available by commission, with custom dimensionality, materials, and finishes.

Niamh Barry was born in 1968 in Dublin, Ireland where she currently works and lives. Upon graduation from the National College of Art and Design in 1991, Barry established her studio and started to make unique conceptual furniture and light sculptures from a range of materials including aluminum, porcelain, linen, mirror, acrylic, wood,  patinated hand-formed bronze, mirror-polished bronze, and Murano glass. Since the debut of the critically acclaimed Fouette light sculpture, Barry has transformed her repertoire to include from free-form contours, hand-hammered vessels, and geometric angles. Gaining critical attention from designers and collectors today, Barry’s work is currently being commissioned worldwide and exhibited at art fairs internationally.   Her light sculptures reside in public and private collections nationally and internationally, including the Four Seasons Hotel, O2, Candy and Candy, Merrion Hotel, Shelbourne Hotel, Finchatton, and U2.
