BARRN 03

Description

Medium: Bronze, LEDs, magnets

Dimensions: 88.5 in high x 47 in wide x 31.25 in deep

Barry’s Black Poise is composed of three dark patinated ellipses, each barnacled with a light-emitting coque. Each coque, in turn, possesses a warm golden interior and an inset mirror polished plate. This well-ordered form is not merely different and enchanting from every angle, but, with its multiplicity of surfaces, colors, and patinas, gives forth a unique, warm, and nuanced light.
