"Gangloff’s frontal, direct and focused paintings recall August Sanders approach to portraiture. The model becomes an archetype under her gaze. Subjects are platonic forms cast into the contemporary - think the cook, the thief, his wife and her lover. But more than bloodless ciphers, these individuals have a story to tell which Glangloff relays through expression, posture and textured nuanced detail. No clue is left to chance but plays a role in a bigger picture. These are psychological portraits that remain timeless depictions of a modern taxonomy, employing form as style, and style as form. "
Hope Gangloff showing from now until June 6th at Susan Inglett Gallery in NYC.
