Violetta Chandler

Luxuriant color, solid drawing and composition, ethereal light and physical movement in light, combined with a refined sensitivity to landscape, and still life painting and portraiture, characterizes the oeuvre of Violetta Chandler. Born November 26, 1965, near Odessa, Ukraine, on the Black Sea. She is a fifth generation artist initially trained by her father Yakov Tsatskin. In 1992 she graduated with honors from Odessa State Institute receiving a master degree in fine arts and teaching. She moved to Sarasota, Florida with her family in 1995. She has taught at the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota and St. Petersburg College and has partidipated in solo and group exhibitions as an original member of Plein Aire Cottage Artists of Indian Rocks Beach.

For Chandler “painting is a dialogue rather than a monologue” with the sympathetic observer. In reference to this, “my paintings can seem unfinished, because I want the emotional connection to the work by the viewer to be completed in their imagination."
