Artist Peter Adamyan’s New Exhibit Focuses on the Intersection Between Religion and Consumerism

Peter Adamyan is a painter whose new exhibit “Salvation Mini Mart” at the Loakal Gallery in Oakland, California offers up art that atheists may take a lot of interest in:

I’d say “Salvation Mini Mart” is an exploration of how religion is a tool to market ideas and the personal agendas of politicians, dictators and religious leaders throughout the centuries. It’s also about what America holds near and dear to their hearts, capitalism and mass consumption. How the right wing which acts like they have a direct lineage to Jesus ignore the fact that their free market ideals are in direct contrast to Jesus’s teachings.

Beyond that there is work in this show that is more about the conflict between science and religion and how the use of religious beliefs to advance an agenda can be extremely dangerous leading to a division of humanity, war and general hatred of our fellow man.

The opening reception takes place at the gallery this Friday night. The exhibit will be up through the end of the month.
