Contemporary artist Sara Pope is well known for her bold, seductive paintings of voluptuous lips. Taking inspiration from Haute Couture fashion and beauty trends, she captures the glamour and power conveyed by the lips and mouth, raising questions of ideals of beauty and femininity.
Sara is currently represented by 17 galleries in the UK and internationally. Last year Sara completed successful solo shows with Jealous Gallery, London and Lilford Gallery, Folkestone during the Folkestone Triennial, as well as a joint London show with Magnus Gjoen. 2018 began with a solo show at D Contemporary gallery, Mayfair, London. Sara has completed collaborations with The Big Issue, BareMinerals makeup, PIAS music label and Saatchi&Saatchi, ME London and Swedish fashion label Limitato. She is also the first British female artist in over 70 years to have a piece of work accepted into the Vatican collection.
