Working within the traditional realm of portrait painting, Hope Gangloff has developed a stylized approach that favors texture and shape over light and depth. Gangloff is a great painter of hands and faces; rendered in dashing brushwork, they always appear full of expressive weight. Her other major talent is for articulating patterns in thin, fastidious lines, enabling her to paint clothing and textiles with incredible finesse.

New York based artist Hope Gangloff paints expressive and visually striking portraits with emotional depth. Her portraits primarily depict family, friends and other artists in intimate, vaguely erotic.
