After crafting Sarah Palin’s likeness out of naughty flesh bits grafted out of porno magazines, artist Jonathan Yeo is back with a new series. It’s also surgical, but literally this time. These portraits of stretched faces under narcosis and various under-construction breasts were painted from photographs of real plastic surgery patients. Some source photos were given to him by surgeons. Some were snapped by Yeo when he sat in on one.
So, no judgement passed and no more celebrities. Well, there’s one of Sienna Miller he hasn’t finished yet. “You’re Only Young Twice,” Jonathan Yeo, Dec 9 – Jan 21, Lazarides Gallery, London
