🙏 Religion: A Sickness or Pleasure?
Today, I want to dive into a thought-provoking topic: religion. Is it a sickness that divides us or a source of pleasure that unites us? Let's explore!
Religion, like any human endeavor, is complex and multifaceted. For some, it can be a deeply personal and fulfilling experience, providing solace, guidance, and a sense of purpose. It offers a moral compass, community support, and a framework for understanding the world.
On the other hand, religion has been at the center of conflicts throughout history, causing divisions, misunderstanding, and even violence. It's important to acknowledge the harm that can arise when religious beliefs are misused or turned into rigid dogma.
Ultimately, the impact of religion depends on how it is practiced and interpreted. When approached with open-mindedness, respect, and a spirit of inclusivity, it can be a powerful force for empathy, compassion, and unity. However, when used to exclude or judge others, it can become a source of division and suffering.
Let's remember that religious or not, we all share this beautiful planet. It's crucial to foster dialogue, understanding, and respect for one another's beliefs, or even the absence of belief. We can find common ground by focusing on our shared values of love, kindness, and acceptance.
So, dear friends, let's engage in thoughtful conversations, embrace diversity, and strive for a world where everyone can coexist peacefully, regardless of their religious or non-religious affiliations.
That's what my new artwork is about - Religion: A Sickness or Pleasure?

“Martynas Ivinskas is not very concerned about form or the tools. This artist – which we can call a true libertarian of the art world – uses any means available at the given moment to create his art. This way the art was born on the jute coffee bags, on city maps – musicians and musical instruments who repeat, articulate and highlight the lines only seen by the artist, the streets of the cities we can one can lose himself. In addition to that he creates objects which are something between a sculpture, collage, a painting or a household item. To the beholder he offers an array of randomly scattered items, the fragmented reality. It is an organized chaos, objectified in his own, unique way. A sort of ‘whatever’ ” . Paulius Garbačiauskas
