Niamh Barry, Fouette Sconce, IRE, 2013

Niamh Barry’s wall-mounted sconce follows the artist’s critically-acclaimed bronze Fouette suspended light sculpture. Comprised of three intertwined mirror-polished bronze loops of various sizes, it is embedded with LEDs behind hand-cut opal glass tiles. Inspired by bodies and movement, Barry’s pieces not only exude the effect of motion, but also elicit the viewers’ own movement in order to enable the full experience of the piece from various vantage points. Fouette refers to a series of fast turns that a ballet dancer makes; accordingly, the viewer becomes a dancer in the process of viewing the sculpture, moving around it in order to expereience its various levels of light.  Barry’s work highlights, both literally and figuratively, the various ways by which we may interpret light and darkness, negative and positive space, and human movement.

Since the inception of her artistic career with Todd Merrill Studio in 2012, Barry has ascended 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 nationally and internationally, including the Four Seasons Hotel, Candy and Candy, Merrion Hotel, Shelbourne Hotel, Finchatton, and the Ritz Carlton. Most recently, Niamh Barry was the recipient of the 2017 Award for Best Lighting in Image Interiors and Living Magazine.
