Collection: Sara Pope

After establishing her career as a shoe designer, it's not hard to see the influence of this World in Sara's artwork. Working with life models she reproduces their lipstick-covered expressions in a style that mimics the pristine, airbrushed imagery of fashion. Pope's original paintings are created with a laborious technique that involves layering almost translucent oil colours until she achieves the desired effect. 

Sara aims to capture the sensuality and seductive power conveyed by the lips and mouth. Interested in questions of beauty, communication, and the notion of perfection, she uses the perspective of her commercial experience to explore these themes.

Sara’s work has been shown in numerous solo exhibitions and art fairs across London and internationally, including Next Street Gallery, Paris, The Saatchi Gallery, London, The London Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy of Arts and SCOPE Miami. Sara sells work regularly at auction at Bonhams Auction House, and is also the first British female artist in over 70 years to have a piece of work accepted into the Vatican collection.
