Counterpoise II, Suspended Light Sculpture

Ireland, 2017



Medium: Hand Formed Mirror Polished and Brushed Solid Bronze, Hand formed Mirror Polished Solid Bronze, Magnets, LEDs

Dimensions: 57.75 in high x 55 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.
