Art I like - John Paul Morabito

I commend to you the work and website of John Paul Morabito, who is studying for an MFA in Chicago.
Also I commend to you what Judy Martin has written about his burned textiles, about the relation between creation and destruction.

"I work in repetition," John Paul Morabito says. "Finding inspiration in the devotional mindsets of religion and masochism I undertake monumental tasks often impossible to complete. Simple, seemingly useless actions are repeated to the point of absurdity and stopped only when the possibility of going on without end is suggested. The work is concerned with the impossibility of eternity."
