I was talking to a friend about political art, telling her that I thought they shouldn’t mix. Then without thinking too much about it, I said religion and art shouldn’t mix either. But before she replied, I corrected myself and said I don’t know what I’m talking about. Religion has inspired some of the most wonderful art ever created. Imagine an art history without religion. Maybe we need more religion in art today.. more offerings to God.. more inspiration from the divine.
As much as I like religion in art, I don’t like living it and I don’t like the ugliness that it has created worldwide. I’m also not an atheist as I see God in everything and every one. I also wouldn’t like to see religion taken from people as its an excellent way to control the masses. Six billion free people scares me more than six billion semi-anethetized sheeple trying to please a book or dogma.
Some of the craziest of us have been people that abandoned a belief in a venegful God, so if you took away the fear of God from 6 billion of us, it would create chaos.
That’s my rant for the month. I’m sorry if I offended most visitors to Art News Blog
