393 Notes

Between Spanx and face lifts, Western culture is obsessed with normalizing the body to fit into a mold deemed more attractive or more “correct.” British artist Jonathan Yeo uses his talent for photorealistic portraiture to explore the way that people subject themselves to plastic surgery in an effort to chase eternal youth and beauty. Painted primarily in beige tones, the works are at once peaceful and grotesque. Women’s faces appear placid and relaxed, but perhaps only under the effects of surgical anesthesia. Gracefully painted bodies are marked with lines for future incisions. Take a look at some of his latest works, images courtesy of the artist.
