Artist Paints Women In The Bliss Of Cosmetic Surgery
ARTIST Jonathan Yeo paints women in the reposeful aspect of cosmetic surgery patients.
Between 2010 and 2012, Yeo created works based on cosmetic surgery procedures. He presents the faces of women in pre and post-operative states, as a counterpoint to the traditional portrait. This collection of paintings was the subject of two solo exhibitions, ‘You’re Only Young Twice’ at Lazarides in London and ‘(I’ve Got You) Under My Skin’ at Circle Culture Gallery in Berlin.
The women appear nun-like, selflessly and obediently awaiting something wonderful and fulfilling.
