Niamh Barry Has Designed A Collection Of Dramatic Lighting Sculptures
Irish artist Niamh Barry has designed a collection of unique, limited edition light sculptures that play with creatively with various shapes.
Taking inspiration from movement and form, her large pieces are intertwined with each piece of the sculpture connected to each other.
Barry uses bronze, either polished or patinated, opal glass, LED’s and magnets to create the designs that are like 3 dimensional drawings.
Self-taught in metal work, Barry has looked towards human figures for inspiration, like with the piece below, that’s based on a study of an embrace of two people.
Other ideas, like ‘Falling’ are based upon the idea of a moment in suspense, with the rings appearing like they are falling and that in one moment they might collapse all around each other.
With some of her work, Barry has applied a black patina on the bronze to help create a powerful contrast, to emphasize visual definition and to give a sense of unmistakable presence.
