‘BISOUS’ is a 5 layer Screen Print, by contemporary artist Sara Pope. Printed onto 410gsm Somerset Tub with hand torn deckled edges, the print is from a signed limited edition of just 10.
Sara Pope is a contemporary British artist, known for her seductive paintings of bold and beautiful lips. With a background in the world of haute couture fashion, and a day job as a high profile shoe designer, it’s no surprise that Pope’s prints are so saturated with style and glamour. Pink, pouty and perfect, Pope’s lip prints, with their high gloss sheen and signature drips of running paint, are nothing short of iconic.
‘BISOUS’ is a departure from Pope’s classic image, depicting not the lips themselves, but their tantalising trace, as puckered pigments crowd the print in shades of cherry red, auburn, hot-pink, and burnt-orange. Playful and provocative, ‘BISOUS’ is full of visual allure, beautifully musing on the nature of beauty and celebrity in contemporary culture.
