'The Girls' by Sarah Bishop is not just a series of paintings; it is an ode to femininity, displaying playful, sexy and captivating characteristics of the female body.

Brooke, Lou Lou, Rachel, Camile (each canvas is named after the girl depicted in it) seem to flirt with the observer, featured seductively dancing or lazily laying on the floor, legs crossed.

What's probably most fascinating in these paintings is the intentional disproportion that Sarah Bishop set between the subjects' body parts, with a strong emphasis on the so-called apple bottom. Each canvas is a jubilation of curves and colors, a tribute to a generous and healthy ideal of femininity, far away from those androgynous skinny archetypes the fashion industry constantly promotes.
