Chris 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 and stillness at its core, the sensational portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II presents an utterly fresh depiction of the most famous woman in the world.

About Chris Levine

Chris Levine (British, b. 1960) works across many mediums in pursuit of sensory experience through image and form. Levine's work considers light not just as a key component of art, but of human experience more widely and a spiritual and philosophical edge permeate his work. His practice is differentiated by the cross-fertilization of many fields including music, performance, installation, fashion, and design in a multitude of collaborative projects. He has worked with a wide range of collaborators, including Anthony and the Johnsons, Philip Treacy, Massive Attack, Grace Jones, Asprey Jewellers, and an ongoing relationship with The Eden Project.
