Counterpoise, Hanging Light Sculpture

Ireland, 2014

Description

Medium: Mirror polished bronze, Opal Glass, LEDs

Dimensions: 73.75 in high x 78.75 in wide x 54.5 in deep

Barry’s Counterpoise is composed of two polished bronze ellipses, barnacled with a series of light-emitting coques. 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, angles, and curves, gives forth a unique, warm, and nuanced light.
