Niamh Barry, Falling, IRE, 2016
Light sculpture in mirror polished solid bronze, opal glass, with LEDs.
Niamh Barry’s Falling is a sculptural, illuminated expression of movement. Composed of Barry’s signature mirror-polished bronze rings and opal glass tiles covering LED lights, the sinuous forms appear as though, at any given moment, they might collapse around one another. A dynamic work of art that perennially glows, Falling is experienced differently from every viewpoint. Barry’s repertoire highlights, both literally and figuratively, the various ways we may interpret light and darkness, negative and positive space, and human 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.
Custom works may be commissioned.
