Chris Levine: Who are wE+

News image

The Fine Art Society has announced Who are wE +, an upcoming solo exhibition by British light artist, Chris Levine. The exhibition presents Levine’s latest portrait series with sitters including the iconic British supermodel Naomi Campbell, the explorer and author Sir Ranulph Fiennes, and fashion designers Paul Smith, and Giorgio Armani. Levine’s work marries art and technology investigating the ways in which we accept and perceive light, and the effect it has on our sense of being. He has worked extensively with laser light, exploring its capacity to both produce illusions and elicit a subliminal response in the viewer, and has pioneered new mediums such as holograms, light boxes and lenticular lenses, creating new mechanisms and technologies to express his ideas. In his portraiture Levine unlocks the light from within his sitter. He sees light both in the physical sense, as an electromagnetic force, and in a spiritual sense. It is his belief that a greater awareness of light as fundamental to our existence will ultimately help us know ourselves better and experience life more brightly. The Who are wE+ exhibition will be on show from 24 April to 19 May 2017 at The Fine Art Society, 148 New Bond Street London W1S 2JT.
