Jonathan Yeo

The British actor and model Cara Delevingne is the subject of Jonathan Yeo’s newest series of works 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. 


Technique
The painting was photographed with a Hasselblad HD5 50 mega pixel camera. The printing was done on Epson printers using Epson archival pigment inks with constant attention to any colour and texture discrepancies. Each print has been hand finished by varnishing in different parts of the image. Published in 2016.

Jonathan Yeo
Jonathan Yeo (born 1970) is the London-based contemporary portraitist responsible for paintings of Cara Delevingne, Nicole Kidman, Dennis Hopper, Prince Philip, Erin O'Connor, George W Bush, David Cameron and Damien Hirst. Although portraiture is sometimes thought of as a conservative medium, Yeo has shown himself to be in pursuit of a subversive agenda, as in his unauthorised 2007 portrait of George W Bush, created from cuttings of pornographic magazines, which brought him worldwide notoriety. He used a similar method in an unauthorised portrait of Paris Hilton, while his painted portraits of British politicians have displayed a similar level of critique unwelcome to the subjects. For the last two years Yeo has been working closely with optical technology specialists in Europe and California in an experimental project to develop software that will allow artists to create in three dimensions via virtual reality. The results are to be revealed in a breakthrough exhibition, ‘From Life’, at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, 2017.
