A collaboration between Grace Jones and groundbreaking light artist Chris Levine is to be shown to the public for the first time.

Chris Levine is a unique artist with a rare sensibility for the use of light. Renowned for his 3D and still images of HRH Queen Elizabeth II, he has now gone on to create a series of 3D portraits of Grace Jones.

'Stillness at the Speed of Light' will showcase the extraordinary alchemy between the iconic singer and this progressive artist.

The Vinyl Factory will be taking preorders for the bespoke art & vinyl edition, which includes the Hurricane LP, Grace’s first album of new material in nineteen years.

Limited to just 500 copies, 'Grace Jones by Chris Levine: Hurricane' will be presented in a gatefold sleeve with a screen-printed front cover artwork of Grace Jones by Chris Levine. Inside, along with two super-heavyweight 200-gram records, mastered for vinyl and released on record for the first time, will be a Giclee fine art print of Chris Levine’s ‘Superstar’ image of Grace Jones. In addition, each of these art & vinyl editions will be numbered and signed by both Grace Jones and Chris Levine. This one-off limited edition can be ordered from www.vfeditions.com and is priced at £300.

'Stillness at the Speed of Light' opens at The Vinyl Factory Gallery in Poland Street, London on April 30 and runs until May 15 2010.
