Counterpoise II, Hanging Light Sculpture

Ireland, 2017


Medium: Mirror polished bronze, LEDs

Dimensions: 55 7in high x 7.75 in deep x 30.25 in wide

Barry’s Counterpoise II 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.
