Richard Levine is a contemporary, graphic artist whose work seamlessly fuses the abstract with the figurative to create a hallucinogenic, twenty-first century aesthetic. Playing with geometrical structures, deeply reminiscent of the technological networks that form computer generated images, Levine combines bright blocks of colour with dimension-bending shapes and graphics, to explore the topology of iconic, cultural icons.
‘Medicated Mouse II’ depicts Disney’s Mickey Mouse, emblazoned with an array of colourful patterns: stripes, blocks, dots, and triangles, cover the cartoon mouse in a hypnotic palette of bold, primary colours, while a ghostly, white pill sits in his open mouth. Texture, light, and illusionistic motion are central, resulting in a hypnotic and tactile revision of the flat, printed image.
