Niamh Barry

Apparent Magnitude, Hanging Light Sculpture

Ireland, 2013


Medium: Mirror polished bronze, patinated bronze, opal glass, LEDs

Dimensions: 80.75 in high x 52.5 in wide x 19.75 in deep

Inspired by forms in nature, especially of people, Niamh Barry conveys volume and motion with the sinuous lines, shedding the rigidity of symmetrical geometries. Apparent Magnitude is a marvel of negative space—a broad, horizontal arrangement of these deftly formed ellipses made up of bronze (both patinated and polished) and strips of LEDs covered in opal glass tiles.
