Check out a recent review here:

“Pee-in-your-pants funny.”  Time Out

“Pangallo’s shape-shifting work inhabiting ‘cringe-worthy’ personae has solidified into something honest and vital.” – Cindy Widner, The Austin Chronicle

“Pangallo’s work is smart, funny, highly original and kinda creepy.” – Glasstire

“Jill Pangallo unleashes her inner angels and demons in a raucous spectacle of clashing alter-egos, therapeutic psychodrama and cathartic release.” – Michael Duncan, Curator and Critic

“What makes us who we are? is a formidable question, and humor like Pangallo’s seems to get us closer to an honest response.” – Caitlin Haskell, Art Papers
