Orla has completed twenty-six site-specific public sculptures. She enjoys working at a large scale; her pieces are conceptually strong and visually striking. Although the sculpture is grand in scale it is important to de Brí that it also works on an intimate level. Having a human element in the sculpture draws people in and makes it easy for them to connect with the piece. Her work is predominately figurative, she sometimes combines solitary highly stylised figures with abstract shapes or elements from nature. Throughout her work there is always communication and interaction. Whether large or small scale de Brí has developed a unique and distinctive style, her fascination with people and how they relate to the world we live in is evident in this body of public sculpture.
