Artists’ Statement

I’m not a talker. Being born severely hearing impaired, I’m not much of a listener either. I’m mostly
an observer. My work is about observing the world around me and then interpreting what I see, what
is tangible, what I perceive. While I’m out in nature I observe the stillness of the woods, I do not hear
the birds but I can feel the soaring strength and solidity of the trees in unity surrounding me. In my
home life, the regular chattering of children and dogs barking can be rebarbative with an amplified
hearing aid. But the physical presence of my children, the quietness of love generated by them
inspires my work to no end. The bits and pieces of life given, the everyday challenges that we all
face on a daily basis, positive or negative, balanced or unbalanced, ultimately give rise to my work.
My work is about I interpret what is going on around me, whether I see it, sense it or “hear” it.


Andrea Sauchelli was born in Columbus, Ohio and has received a BFA at Rochester Institute
of Technology in Rochester, New York. She has exhibited in New Jersey, Philadelphia and
New York. Being a firm believer in healing through art, Sauchelli’s work is in many
permanent collections throughout Southern New Jersey as part of AtlantiCare’s Healing Arts
Program. Andrea Sauchelli is a Signature Artist at The Noyes Museum of Art and a
Signature Artist of STROBE, ArtC’s South Jersey Artists Collective. Andrea Sauchelli is a
member and an instructor at the Pine Shores Art Association and she is represented by
Solace Studio and Gallery in Surf City, NJ. Sauchelli has a strong affinity to the environment
and her abstract often large-scale work evokes the energy of the ever-changing
landscape. Her paintings do not reference a specific location but in fact, give the viewer a
sense of our environmental space and the awareness of time. Sauchelli’s love and respect of
nature, its growth and decay and its ability to promote healing are the focus in her works,
which range from painting to mixed media, collage, and photography. Sauchelli is a full-time
artist living in Manahawkin, NJ.
