Niamh Barry, Apparent Magnitude II, IRE, 2014

Apparent Magnitude II is composed of Niamh Barry’s signature hand-formed solid bronze rings that float while illuminated by LED lights under glass opal tiles. The Apparent Magnitude series deals with the various ways by which we may interpret light and darkness, negative and positive space, and movement. That which cannot be seen from angle may be apparent from another. 

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.
