SKIN DEEP will be the first extensive major survey of Yeo’s Surgery Series, and will include well known and acclaimed works, as well as recent oil paintings charting the latest developments in aesthetic enhancement.


The Bowes Museum is pleased to host another UK exclusive exhibition, this time by British artist Jonathan Yeo. Acclaimed worldwide for his depictions of public figures including Nicole Kidman, Cara Delevingne, Damien Hirst and members of the Royal family, this new show is based on his Surgery Series. Through the classical medium of oil paint Yeo will be exploring the intricacies and complex issues surrounding the current cult for cosmetic surgery and the quest for physical ‘perfection’. 

 Working from archival photos and observing cosmetic surgeons at first hand, the works show patients in pre- and post-operative states.
