Love to introduce Niamh Barry and her beautiful first lamp in the series of pieces titled ‘Artists Hand’. Niamh creates unique light sculptures predominantly in bronze and LED and is recognized as an early adopter and innovator in the use of LED technology. She attributes this technology as allowing her to ‘draw’ with light and bronze. In her artist statement you can read more about the process of these three dimensional drawings in bronze and light.
As every piece is entirely site specific, each one will be completely unique and handmade in her own studio in solid bronze. Niamh: “working further into this series at the moment and an important part of my creative process is to surround myself with sketches and drawings and look, then look again repeating and repeating the drawing process until I have captured the quality of line and overall form that expresses what I see in my minds eye. This Artists hand series is literally an exercise in drawing with bronze and capturing the quality of line that you see in my drawings on paper. The light drawing the eye and anchoring this expression”.
