VCCP London to Host Three Month Exhibition for Artist Sara Pope
Over the course of the next three months, VCCP London is hosting an exhibition by the artist Sara Pope.
Pope is best known for her seductive paintings and limited edition prints of big, bold and beautiful celebrity lips – a subject of fascination for Pope who believes, “our lips can communicate a multitude of emotions and are integral to us reading a face. Yet when colour is applied to these lips, they become powerful, sexual symbols”.
Sara’s work is rapidly gaining attention. She currently exhibits with several galleries including Lawrence Alkin Gallery, London; Jealous Gallery, London; Artrepublic, Brighton and 166a Arte, Florence, Italy.
She is also the first woman to have a portrait of the Pope accepted for permanent display at the Vatican.
The exhibition is the first of a series of displays to be held at VCCP, with the intention of showcasing emerging talent as well as more established artists.
