Crime of Passion Original Painting by Sara Pope
Contemporary artist Sara Pope is best known for her bold, seductive paintings of voluptuous lips. Taking inspiration from a successful career in the fashion industry and her work in magazines as a designer and art director, Sarah aims to capture the sensuality and seductive power conveyed by the lips and mouth.
Sara starts her process with makeup and lipstick - painting the models lips, using tricks and techniques of make up and lighting she begins the process of creating the perfect lips. Asking the model to express different emotions she captures them photographically. Using these as inspiration shots she begins her artwork. Her original paintings start with several layers of thin oil-diluted paint being overlaid, blending and smoothing the colours extensively at every stage, sometimes even mixing lipstick into the paint. Emulating the stylistic slickness of advertising, the result is glossy, perfect and irresistible.
Currently represented by 23 UK galleries, she has completed solo shows and has successfully collaborated with BareMinerals makeup, PIAS music label, The Big Issue & Limitato. She is also the first British Female artist in over 70 years to have a piece of work accepted into the Vatican collection.
