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.
‘Riot’ depicts a pair of lustrous, raspberry-pink lips, slightly parted and splashed all over with tiny flecks of blue and yellow paint, like a miniature pollock painting. Sultry and suggestive, the strength of ‘Riot’ lies not only in its aesthetic prowess, but in its nuanced musing on the nature of beauty and celebrity in contemporary culture.
