“I guess this is what happens when you can’t leave your home for a year,” says Joe Iurato. Undoubtedly that is why its called “Cabin Fever”
With some irony, the new collection of editions on paper, photography, original paintings on canvas, and wood assemblages didn’t happen while he was on lockdown with his family. Still, it came flying out of him this spring after the long year of cabin fever lifted.
The new show is crisp and clean, tightly gathered, thoughtfully narrated, more mature than ever – in his vernacular of childhood as told through his street art stencillist hand. “This body of work is my crossroads and a quick rundown of each path to explore what lies ahead. It’s an unfiltered, visceral reaction to a life event that I’ll never be able to explain fully.”
