Hope… for the modern girl longing for interpretation …. Gangloff lives for us all in her photos of realistic excess, rebellion, and simple life.
It’s not a gross interpretation to say that Gangloff may very well represent a generation that longs to live in a nostalgic haze of bohemian, and a slightly unconventional lifestyle of banter, rebellion, and sexual freedom. Though the sexual aspect of her works are somewhat minimal in some instances, those that she makes relevant are significant as she reveals the freedom and humanistic value of the body as a complete part of the individual.
Capturing the individual personality of her friends and subjects gives her work a very relateable feel. Her subjects seem to be very nonchalant and laid-back, allowing those watching the opportunity to glance into the moment they are experiencing.
There is a huge contradiction to Gangloff’s paintings, as the colors are slightly muted while other aspects are dense and deeply saturated in color, which brings a primary focus to something special in her subject that she wants to pull forward. Hope’s paintings may seem at first glance, intermediate at best, but when looking deeper, longer, and feeling more….the onlooker can only notice the sheer perfection of detail and passion within her works.
