Niamh Barry

Apparent Magnitude II, Hanging Light Sculpture

Ireland, 2014


Dimensions: 35.5 in high x 98.75 in wide x 24.75 in deep

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

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 II 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.
