What is fascinating is the tension between public and private in his portraits. Both the images of the Queen and Kate Moss are mesmerising pieces of iconography, yet Levine wants us to see his subjects stripped of their celebrity. With eyes closed, both are cast anew yet remain separate and distinct. They reveal nothing whilst inviting us to stare. Both images feel like a private moment that has been captured - but are instantly iconic.
If you have an idle moment, the exhibition is on until this Saturday. The portrait of Moss is just a preliminary work for the main event - a holographic stereogram being unveiled at Selfridges on June 17th. A challenge to Warhol’s Marilyn?
