A sculpture by award-winning artist Ruth E Lyons has been completed and installed at Honeypark in Dun Laoghaire. It comes after a commitment by Cosgrave Property Group to retain a budget for artwork at their new schemes.

The project is not a new one for the developers, who in the past have overseen the installation of public art pieces in developments like Radisson Blu St Helen’s Hotel, Pembroke Square and Derrynane Square.

At Honeypark, a scheme that has been built over a 10-year period, the 12m-high sculpture called ‘Superunification’ has been unveiled.

It is made of mild steel that is hop dip galvanised and painted in a gradation of colours.  It goes from black blue at the top through to ultramarine to white at the base.

“Superunification is an abstract sculpture,” says Lyons. “It is inspired by the study of our universe and a search for a ‘theory of everything’.

"For me, the sculpture is about unifying the large and small scale in our lives, keeping in mind the unfathomable nature of existence while going about our daily toils. In its fluid form, the sculpture also ties different perspectives – those of the sky, sea and land that surround Honeypark.”
