Niamh Barry, Counterpoise Suspended Light Sculpture, IRE, 2014

Niamh Barry’s Counterpoise features hand-raised, mirror-polished bronze vessels floating amidst the artist’s signature hand-formed, mirror-polished bronze rings. The vessels and rings interact in perfect harmony, much like a pair of dancers in motion. Barry writes, “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 her graduation from the National College of Art and Design, Barry established her studio practice. Barry creates unique, limited edition light sculptures and furniture made from a wide range of materials. In her signature works, visual weight and movement are constant themes.

Since the beginning of her artistic career with Todd Merrill Studio in 2012, Barry has risen to prominence in the art and design world, becoming one of the most sought-after figures working in LED light sculptures today. Barry was profiled in Architectural Digest and Galerie Magazine and her work is included in many public and private collections in both the United States and abroad including the Four Seasons Hotel, Candy and Candy, Merrion Hotel, Shelbourne Hotel, Finchatton, the Ritz Carlton, and U2’s own collection. Most recently, Barry was the recipient of the 2017 Award for Best Lighting in Image Interiors and Living Magazine.

Custom works may be commissioned.
