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.
‘Richard Drake’ takes the famous sixteenth century portrait of the Elizabethan courtier and strips it back to its raw materials, presenting a computerised version of the antique painting, all awash with shades of soft violet. Texture, light, and illusion are central, resulting in a hypnotic and tactile revision of the flat, printed image.
