Art Review - "Vera" by Hope Gangloff - Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, Missouri

For today's #museumtourtuesday, I'd like to feature one of my favorite contemporary American painters, Hope Gangloff.

I was first introduced to her work in 2013 as part of an exhibition at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, Missouri
The piece below inspired me to seek out more of her paintings.
She creates portraits of friends and family in bright, vibrant colors. The line work in her paintings is both graphic and expressive, and she fills the spaces of these large works with a dramatic collection of patterns. I find her work reminiscent of both Egon Schiele and Edouard Vuillard.
