Caravaggio

Master of Light, Dark and Perception

Following on from the popular session I ran in 2020, in this session we will return to the life of Caravaggio and his extraordinary works of art.

This session will focus in detail on some of Caravaggio’s most famous works of art as well as those lesser known. His works are viscerally alive, full of drama, movement and emotion, often concealing deeper meaning, and ask the viewer to be an engaged participant.

We will also explore his ideas of perception and us, the viewer, who he invites – or more so confronts – with his images. He continually plays on ideas of perception, of seeing and being seen, and paints himself as the characters he portrays.

We will discover his innovations, his inspirations and his life story which has made him one of the most famous and influential artists in the world.
