Niamh Barry, Gesture Wall-Mounted Light Sculpture, IRE, 2014
Gesture is the debut of Niamh Barry’s most recent wall-mounted light sculpture with prominent angular lines.
A dynamic work of art, Gesture is experienced differently from every angle. The uniqueness of an evolving sculpture that interacts with the viewer and its environment is what renders Barry’s work so compelling. Since the debut of the critically- acclaimed Fouette light sculpture two years ago, Barry has transformed her work from free-form contours to geometric angles. This is the second piece in the new series.
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, 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, black patinated solid hand formed bronze, mirror polished hand formed solid bronze, and opal 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.
Todd Merrill Studio has published a 90-page full-color catalogue dedicated to Niamh Barry’s sculptural lighting featuring essays by Todd Merrill, Bella Neyman, and Jennifer Scanlan.
