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 III’ takes the famous fifteenth century portrait of the Plantagenet king and strips it back to its raw materials, presenting a computerised version of the antique painting, the monarch all awash with monochrome patterns and set against a vivid blue, spotted background. Texture, light, and illusion are central, resulting in a hypnotic and tactile revision of the flat, printed image.
