We Remember Csilla Sadloch

Csilla Sadloch

Csilla Sadloch was an award-winning artist whose works on paper and paintings appeared in a multitude of solo shows—including at the Woodmere Art Museum—and group shows both regionally and nationally. Known for her large-scale graphite drawings of plant matter, Csilla’s detailed renderings of meandering vines, curled bark and gnarly roots are striking, meticulous and extraordinarily realistic.

“I had the pleasure of getting to know Csilla, the person and the artist,” says former ArtTalk producer Dennis Riley. “I had never seen drawings of tree roots so intriguing and detailed. She told us of her walks with her dog along the islands in the Delaware River near Washington Crossing and shared that the ‘joints’ or connections of the tree limb roots were captivating to her.” 

Csilla was the winner of the prestigious Phillips’ Mill Juried Art Show Patrons’ Award on three occasions and was a featured guest on ArtTalk in 2021. “Her warmth, intelligence and beauty will be missed as her art lives on,” says Riley.
