Chris Levine is a light artist who works across many mediums in pursuit of 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 and a spiritual and philosophical edge permeate his work. Levine is perhaps best known for producing what is already being described as one of the most iconic images of the twenty first century, Lightness of Being.With light as its message, the sensational portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II presents an utterly fresh depiction of the most famous woman in the world. Levine is a pioneer in the field of light art, creating an adapting technology in the pursuit of the widest possible visual sensation.
Levine has had solo exhibitions at a number of institutions and galleries, including The Fine Art Society Contemporary, London, Asprey, London, and Genesis Foundation Commission, London. Group shows and special exhibitions include Society Contemporary, Hong Kong, Annenberg Foundation, Los Angeles, Museum of Modern Art, New York, National Museum, Cardiff, National Portrait Gallery, London, National Gallery, Scotland, National Museum, Belfast, Swarovski Crystal Palace, Milan and Colette, Paris.
