Niamh Barry, Falling, IRE, 2016

Light sculpture in mirror polished solid bronze, opal glass, with LEDs.

Niamh Barry’s Falling is a sculptural, illuminated interpretation of suspended movement.  Composed of Barry’s signature mirror-polished bronze rings and opal glass tiles covering LEDs, 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 angle. The uniqueness of an evolving sculpture that interacts with the viewer and its environment is what renders the artist’s work so compelling. Barry’s repertoire highlights, both literally and figuratively,  the various ways by which we can interpret light and darkness, negative and positive space, and human movement. A bespoke version may be made to order with custom dimensionality and finishes. 

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, Niamh Barry established her studio and started to make unique conceptual furniture and light sculptures from a range of materials that has included aluminum, porcelain, linen, mirror, and acrylic as well as wood, back patinated solid hand-formed bronze, mirror-polished hand-formed solid bronze, and Murano 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.
