Hope Gangloff is an American painter living and working in New York City. Born 1974, she is one year older than me. The picture of her painting in her studio, black overalls and climbing on a ladder, my mother mistook for me in my studio, black overalls, climbing on a ladder. The patterns in these paintings remind me of the French fauvists. The figures, Egon Schiele. Their poses, Diebenkorn. Add a dash of modern hipster and you’re there.
