Andrea Sauchelli

My inspiration for these paintings arises from the bold colors in the interior windows of the children's hospital where I struggled to overcome the psychological shock of my daughter's initial diagnosis of chronic bone disease.  

The vibrant beauty of the windows themselves served as a catalyst for my interpretation of the countless raw emotions that I experienced.  Institutional hospitals are places fraught not only with grief, fear and loss but also bastions of hope, prayer, and healing.  My art finds its roots in the former but it's expression in the latter.
