Art Basel: Two Artists Pair to Paint a New Look for the Miami City Ballet (sunpost.com, 12.1.11)
December 01, 2011
The Artwork by Jordan Schaps & Benjamin Martin Debuts This Week for Art Basel.
In late September, SunPost was invited to photograph Jordan Schaps and Benjamin Martin as they painted a ballerina of the Miami City Ballet. The model posed for a mixed media rendition of the five basic feet positions of ballet.
The idea came to fruition collaboratively from Martin, who envisioned the techniques of painting, photographing, and digitizing, Schaps, who saw the five-position concept intriguing, and Bill Miller and the Miami City Ballet as the foundation of the project.
