Sabine Poppe combines her love for the human face and her fascination with colour to produce vibrant portraits. The images are abstract and yet realistic, the eyes and lips seem to captivate the viewer.

From the Artist
“I loved painting from my early age and was encouraged by my artistic mother and her fashion designer sister. During my formal education, I completed two science degrees but even then, I preferred to hang around the art college and my best friends were artists.
In the last few years I have had the freedom to follow my passion for art again. Colours and Eyes are what drive my art. I love the visual impact of bright colours, they make my life exciting. To have a big blob of magenta on a palette knife and place it right next to the bright orange delivers “instant sunshine”. The amazing variety in human faces fascinates me, how only minimal proportional changes are recognizable and provide a person’s likeness or not. The eyes in particular give so many information, they really are the window of one’s soul. Closely followed the mouth, is it smiling, wanting to kiss or tight and angry? We are all judging.”
