Jonathan Yeo '(I’ve Got You) Under My Skin' in Berlin

On November 8th the first major exhibition in Berlin by celebrated British artist Jonathan Yeo will be launched at Circle Culture Gallery. The exhibition will run until Saturday 12th January, 2013. For this major new Berlin show, Jonathan Yeo, known internationally for his portraits and collages of subjects including Damien Hirst, Nicole Kidman, Dennis Hopper,Tony Blair, and Erin O’Connor, makes a new departure into the world of plastic surgery, basing a series of works on the theme, showcased alongside signature pieces created from pornographic magazines. Yeo spent 18 months observing the work of leading cosmetic surgeons in the UK and US to produce a collection of work exploring the processes and results of this fast-growing phenomenon, with canvases from the series already having been displayed to media and critical acclaim in London, (I’ve Got You) Under My Skin in Berlin features these alongside a number of previously unseen works. Aside from that there'll also be a bold new study of his current muse, actress Sienna Miller. Circle Culture Gallery is located in Gipsstraße 11, 10119 Berlin.
