DESCRIPTION:  The light sculpture, “Fouette II”, is an interesting rethinking of available LED light technology recast in traditional materials. This lighting installation/ hanging chandelier is comprised of five intertwined polished brass loops of various sizes imbedded with LED lights. The word fouette refers to a series of fast turns that a ballet dancer makes.

Niamh Barry was born in 1968 in Dubin, Ireland where she still works and lives. In 1991 upon graduation from the National College of Art and Design, Barry established her studio and started to make unique conceptual furniture and light sculptures from a range of materials that has included aluminum, porcelain, linen, mirror, and acrylic as well as wood, patinated and polished bronze and Murano glass. In her signature work, visual weight and movement are a constant theme.

Barry's work is included in many public and private collections nationally and internationally, including the Four Seasons Hotel, O2, Candy and Candy, Merrion Hotel, Shelbourne Hotel, Finchatton, and U2.
