Kate Moss portrait by Chris Levine
I finally got round to seeing the Kate Moss She's Light pictures at the Fine Art Society, this week. The portraits are beautiful. La Moss looks very calm, like she's meditating or floating in the Mediterranean Sea in the south of France, off Philip Green's yacht no doubt. As the cover of the latest Mario Sorrenti photography book proves, the almost-40-year-old model is a total water babe.
Gorgeous. Anyhow. Levine specialises in lenticular printing (a bit like those seaside postcards that change position when you move them about), once mounted on a lightbox, the image looks like a 3D hologram. She's Light is made up of five different pictures, so that when you move around the room, Kate Moss moves with you.
The exhibition is a collaboration between light artist Chris Levine and make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury. It's on until 29 June, so there's still time to catch it if you're in London.
Levine is most famous for his fabulous portrait of the Queen - which I think is the best picture of Her Maj, ever. There are a couple of fluorescent pink silkscreen images on show too, I particularly liked the faded one, which looks like an old stamp, don't you think?
Can't quite believe Kate Moss is 40 this year...That Is My Age.
