The Incredible Lightness of Being
chris levine, light, fine arts society
'She's Light', 2013, by Chris Levine


Rather than working in any one particular medium, Chris Levine describes himself as a 'light artist'. His use of light is meant to take you on a sensory experience, in which you not only see the images with your eyes, but are enveloped by atmosphere they create.

At his first gallery appearance at The Fine Arts Society, you will be able to see Levine's iconic portrait of the Queen, Lightness of Being, in which he used florescent ink to create negative photographs with a neon effect. He will also be showcasing his highly anticipated new series, She's Light, which is a phosorescent depiction of Kate Moss, which makes her look like an ethereal Pagan goddess. Although his work is presented on walls, the art transcends this usually flat method of display, as the gallery is turned into an atmospheric light show flooded with vivid colours.

Levine produces more than just portraits; he also explores the nature of simple geometric shapes, such as his LED displays of Modulation Disc and Cubed Light. These installations show the world in a three dimensional space - just how the world it meant to be seen.

The exhibition is free, and can be viewed until the 15th June.
