Catalogue Note

Renowned for his work with lights, laser and holography, Chris Levine has built a cult following with his iconic portraits of some of the most photographed women of all time, including Grace Jones, Kate Moss and as presented here, Queen Elizabeth II. Levine’s meditative view of the Queen is an unusual portrayal of Her Majesty. As the artist puts it, ‘Stillness is a portal to the divine, and by taking my subjects towards stillness, it allows for a more soulful connection with the subject, and that light radiates in the work.’ Through the artist’s deft handling of lenticular printing, we are presented with an overall sensory experience and visual offering of Her Majesty in the form of this powerful and rare lightbox.
