Outline Editions is pleased to present an interactive solo exhibition by graphic designer Noma Bar on the occasion of London Design Festival 2011. Bar's work explores negative space—the artist often limits himself to two colors—and figure-ground optical illusions that, in Milton Glaser's felicitious phrasing, "inform and delight."
With bold colors, shapes and pared-down iconography, Bar can capture the spirit of a person or the heart of an issue with arresting clarity and humor.
The centerpiece of the exhibition is "an amazing, interactive art-making machine for the event. 'Cut It Out'"—pictured above—"is an especially commissioned, Heath Robinson-esque embossing device/sculpture in the shape of a giant dog, that will allow visitors to feed paper, rubber and other materials into its mouth to produce their own cut-out Noma Bar images."
