We’ve been super busy this week printing for a few upcoming exhibitions, including the first major London solo exhibition for Chris Levine at The Fine Art Society Contemporary in New Bond Street.
Chris Levine is a light artist who works across mediums in pursuit of a sensory experience through image and form. Levine’s work considers light not just as a core aspect of art, but of human experience more widely with a spiritual and philosophical edge underscoring his practice. Levine is perhaps best known for producing what is already being described as an iconic image of the twenty-first century, Lightness of Being (2007). With light at its core, this portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II presented a fresh depiction of the most famous woman in the world.
Chris Levine: Light will act as a survey of Levine’s work to date, helping to contextualize the Queen and subsequent portraiture within his immersive light installations. These are not two modes of working, for Levine they are deeply interconnected and born from the cross-fertilization of disciplines including music, performance, installation, fashion and design. Levine will also unveil new figurative work in which the next well known subject is dramatically represented through the use of his distinctive visual language.
