Niamh Barry, Black Poise Suspended Light Sculpture, IRE, 2016

Black Poise is a spectacular bronze light sculpture that floats effortlessly in perfect harmony of material and form. The suspended, sinuous structure is inspired by human movement and displayed so as to be experienced from every angle, eliciting the viewer’s own motion around the work. Black Poise’s interlocking black patinated bronze rings feature three hand-raised bronze vessels. The interiors of the vessels are finished in polished copper and illuminated by a glow of hidden dimmable LED lights. Like Barry’s celebrated earlier works, Black Poise is a feat of handcrafted metalwork that perfectly illuminates Barry’s mastery of balance and movement.

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 has been profiled in Architectural Digest, Modern Magazine, Galerie Magazine, the Financial Times and was the recipient of the 2017 Award for Best Lighting in Image Interiors and Living Magazine.

In 2017 Barry was commissioned by the Central Bank of Ireland to create a monumental work referencing the Broighter Boat and its historical importance. Most recently Barry was selected by the National Museum of Ireland to create a monumental commission that will be part of the museum’s permanent collection. A survey exhibition of her work will be mounted at the museum in 2018.

Todd Merrill Studio is Niamh Barry’s sole representative in the United States.
