Ms. Luchetti’s work is drawn from the bird collection she photographed at the Yale University’s Peabody Museum’s Div. of Vertebrate Zoology. Her drawings are an interpretation of the seemingly unabated “mass extinction of the animal world as a result of global warming; and our own species ambivalent role as stewards of our planet. The drawings are mediation on the contradiction inherent in our race to collect, classify and catalog the world around us, as we systematically destroy it.
