The British actor and model Cara Delevingne is the subject of Jonathan Yeo’s newest series of prints concerned with image making and performed identity. Delevingne provides Yeo with the perfect subject to explore the transition from traditional to contemporary portrait making, which Yeo sees as an integral part of modern life with the rise of social media. The face on each print has been varnished by hand, which further illuminates the complex tonalities of the painted portrait in print form.
