Monique Luchetti utilizes her artwork as a means to convey and emphasize the significance of environmental and animal conservation. Drawing inspiration from her photographs of birds in ornithology collections, she skillfully transforms them into detailed pencil drawings and then applies abstract paintings to these drawn bodies. These abstract elements symbolize the concept of the soul—the individual life force conspicuously absent amidst the numerous lifeless bodies stored in museum drawers.


Luchetti's drawings serve as memorials, each adorned with a symbolic life she envisions for them. This artistic approach signifies a shift towards a consciousness that extends beyond the physical body, prompting contemplation on the impact of our actions on the intricate web of life.
