Chris Levine is primarily a light artist who creates work across a broad selection of media. Through a focus on image and form, he pursues a higher state of awareness and perception in his work, one in which light is not solely considered as a pivotal aspect of visual art, but of the human experience and condition. In this vein his work includes a philosophical, spiritual and meditative approach.
His image, 'Lightness of Being', a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, has been described as one of the most iconic images of our time and deemed by the National Portrait Gallery to be the most evocative royal portraits ever created. His show Hypervision 1.2 visited 12 countries with the British Council, and his artwork is also included in London's Science Museum. His light performances and exhibitions have taken place across the globe in spaces including The Eden Project, The Royal Opera House, MATE Museum Lima, MOFO festival for Tasmania's MONA Museum, and Radio City in New York (commissioned by MOMA).
