Nora Turato’s work is rooted in the versatility of language and its potential as a self-reflexive mechanism. Her frequent fusing of the printed word, image, and performance allows for disruptions in societal norms and models alternative modes of being and communicating. Reminiscent of her poster series that references tobacco health warnings, It is what you think it is displays Turato’s characteristic blending of high and low by combining sophisticated graphic sensibilities with text treatment borrowed from utilitarian manufacturer labels. The bold script is reminiscent of the cultural indicators of advertising, yet the oscillating black, yellow, red, and white squares recall the formal logic of geometric abstraction. This poster is a particularly excellent example of the layered linguistic and visual juxtapositions that are indicative of Turato’s artistic practice.
