A landscape painter inspired by the ever-changing colour, light and dramatic scenery presented by nature.
Diana Sandetskaya paints the end of the day as the sun sets and nocturnal scenes, often in the context of a suburban landscape. Sandetskaya is interested in the emotive response of a viewer to the same place, depending on the time of day, weather, and season, as well as one’s mood, imagination, narrative and personal experience. Sandetskaya records what she has seen and experienced, capturing local scenes that evoked in her a sense of awe, either visually and/or emotionally. She works mainly in oils, painting in a style that references Realism and Romanticism.
Sandetskaya, a self-taught artist based in Mill Hill, North London, joined Studio Fridays in April 2017. Since then, her work has been included in exhibitions and art fairs throughout the UK, including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and the Wales Contemporary international open competition.
