Hope Gangloff's new work
paintings are gratifyingly overstuffed with garish details rendered in contrasting patterns and in nips of fluorescent orange and extravagant swathes of hot pink. There’s a funny play between color and patterning in her work—the elements are at once discordant and of a piece, excessive and sensible.

This show feels like a more traditional figure painting show where the sitter is of greater importance than the painter.
