Niamh Barry

Rising, Hanging Light Sculpture

Ireland, 2017



Medium: Bronze, glass, LEDs

Dimensions: 35 in high x 51.5 in wide x 42.5 in deep

Rising, a remarkable light sculpture by Niamh Barry, is composed of intersecting ellipses of polished bronze and LED strips covered in opal glass. With every element of the piece—its fluid lines, counterbalance of polished metal and light, and arrangement of constituent shapes—the Irish sculptor, an innovator in the use of LED, has manipulated space and light to embody weightlessness and upward motion.
