Black Poise by Niamh Barry
Updated: Jan 16, 2020
Niamh Barry’s latest work, Black Poise, a spectacular new monumental LED and bronze light sculpture floats effortlessly in perfect harmony of material and form. The suspended, sinuous structures are inspired by human movement and displayed so as to be experienced from every angle, igniting our own motion around them. This 7`-foot long work incorporates interlocking black patinated bronze rings with three hand-raised bronze vessels. The interiors of the vessels are finished in polished copper and illuminated by a glow of hidden dimmable LED lights. As in Barry’s celebrated earlier works, Black Poise is a feat of handcrafted metal work perfectly illuminating Barry’s mastery of balance and movement.
