"yoo hoo, boys, my name is Cara, Cara Vaggio"

one of the greatest painters of all time. when one of his paintings came to america i went to see it as a pilgrimage. it was at the MET in a room all by itself- a room it filled with it's darkness, it's radiant darkness that makes the light whiter and purer.

carravaggio was the wild man of the post-renaissance- homosexuality, painting whores and street urchins as saints, running arms. but darkness really does give birth to the most dazzling of my all time favorites.
