About the Artist
Master Artist, Author, Lawyer and Professor, Madeleine Schachter’s art traverses a journey to lightness, comprised of subtle palettes imbued with hints of gilded tones. Each piece implies movement, infused with buoyancy and sensation that defies pragmatism and precision, and uses tilt and tinge to evoke a sense of hope and golden glints to enchant. Suggestive abstraction endows the viewer with prospect and possibility, entrusting that implication will arouse contemplation to enable unique flights into self-reflection and sentiment.

“My aim is through my work to shift the mood, as I produce work, as I work with others to produce art, and as my art is viewed. My work is abstract, infused with light and comprised of subtle palettes, as well as with gilded tones and golden glints to bring a sense of tranquility and enchantment.”
