Niamh Barry, Tilted Head II, IRE, 2016

Tilted Head II is based on a study of human embrace and movement. Made with Niamh Barry’s signature hand-formed bronze rings, the work features opal glass tiles that cover LED light strips, emitting a perennial, warm glow. Experienced differently from every angle at which the viewer stands, Tilted Head II not only comments on human movement, but also elicits the viewer’s own movement around the work.  Tilted Head II is the second version of Tilted Head, created within Niamh Barry’s commission-based program. A bespoke version of this piece 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, 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.
