Niamh Barry, Counterpoise Suspended Light Sculpture, IRE, 2014

Niamh Barry’s new work, Counterpoise, features hand-raised mirror polished and brushed solid bronze vessels floating amidst the artist’s signature hand-formed mirror polished solid bronze rings. The combination of bronze vessels with bronze rings work together in perfect harmony, like a pair of accomplished dancers in motion. According to Barry,  “Counterpoise deals with the dynamic of balance and counterbalance expressed through the relationship between line and form. The lines flow and create movement, the forms give gravitas and solidity, both line and form in balance.”

Niamh Barry was born in 1968 in Dublin, Ireland where she still works and lives. In 1991 upon graduation from the National College of Art and Design, Barry established her studio and started to make unique conceptual furniture and light sculptures from a range of materials including aluminum, porcelain, linen, mirror, and acrylic as well as wood,  black patinated solid hand formed bronze, mirror polished hand formed solid bronze, and opal glass. In her signature work, visual weight and movement are a constant theme.  All custom pieces are available with dimmable LED lighting.

Barry’s work is included in many public and private collections nationally and internationally, including the Four Seasons Hotel, O2, Candy and Candy, Merrion Hotel, Shelbourne Hotel, Finchatton, and U2.  

Todd Merrill Studio has published a 90-page full-color catalogue dedicated to Niamh Barry’s sculptural lighting featuring essays by Todd Merrill, Bella Neyman, and Jennifer Scanlan.
