Niamh Barry, Walking, IRE, 2015
Niamh Barry’s Walking is the artist’s first standing work within her exquisite repertoire of unique illuminated sculptures. Based on the traced motion of legs in motion, Walking is a visual study of movement. Walking both references movement and elicits the viewer’s own motion around the work so as to experience it from every vantage point. Composed of hand-formed mirror-polished patinated bronze, glass opal tiles, and dimmable LED lights, Walking emits and reflects light across any space.
Since the beginning of her artistic career with Todd Merrill Studio in 2012, Barry has risen to prominence in the art and design world, becoming one of the most sought-after figures working in LED light sculptures today. Barry has been profiled in Architectural Digest, Modern Magazine, Galerie Magazine, the Financial Times and was the recipient of the 2017 Award for Best Lighting in Image Interiors and Living Magazine.
In 2017 Barry was commissioned by the Central Bank of Ireland to create a monumental work referencing the Broighter Boat and its historical importance. Most recently Barry was selected by the National Museum of Ireland to create a monumental commission that will be part of the museum’s permanent collection. A survey exhibition of her work will be mounted at the museum in 2018.
Todd Merrill Studio is Niamh Barry’s sole representative in the United States.
