Rosemary Luckett’s mixed media drawings reveal a lively interplay between real and surreal expression. In her collage drawings, she pairs the unexpected: nooses with mega-coal-mining equipment, rubber ducks with live birds, and Christmas lights with asthma inhalers.  Her works are metaphors for American culture and commerce. Each piece is built around a single real or symbolic object or group of items that seem unrelated to each other. The fun for her is in trying out unusual combinations of forms and solving the mysteries of the links between them, pointing out connections between the seen and the unseen.  Finely honed technique and a strong concern for the environment pair up with a personality characterized by a questioning bent and a sense of humor to form these stories of the American landscape and our consumption of it.Luckett Captain Destruction
