Niamh Barry, Gesture Wall-Mounted Light Sculpture, IRE, 2014
Niamh Barry’s Gesture, a wall-mounted light sculpture, features 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 in 2014, Barry has transformed her work from freeform contours to geometric angles. Gesture 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 create unique conceptual furniture and light sculptures from a range of materials including aluminum, porcelain, linen, mirror, and acrylic as well as wood, black patinated hand-formed solid bronze, mirror-polished solid bronze, and Murano glass. In her signature works, visual weight and movement are constant themes. 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, the Merrion Hotel, the Shelbourne Hotel, Finchatton, and U2’s own collection.
