The Big Question: Human Body

this week we were taken through the works of Caravaggio who appears to love making his audience question his intentions. Usually creating works with religious meaning it is expected that we would be able to understand what Caravaggio was thinking, even to this day. However in reality this is not quite the case. Later on the lecturer began showing us how the works of Caravaggio might have helped inspire more modern artists. There was some great discussions in this lecture on the depiction of innocence and how religion can remove eroticism from the naked form, as well as questioning who is he indenting to be who in a few of his paintings. I really enjoy how each week more people are feeling braver about putting their thoughts across, helping to enrich the whole experience.
