Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

I love Hope Gangloff's paintings with animals in them now on view at Susan Inglett gallery

"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.
