Exploring the Different Artistic Styles Represented in Anno Domini Gallery
Anno Domini’s co-founder, the co-founder, Ms. Cherri lakey, has not met Mr. Zack Luchetti. He is an artist, teacher and artist from Oakland who was a student of Barron Storey (illustrator at San Jose State). The work he created was so amazing that her and her friend Mr. Brian Eder, decided to put together a tribute exhibit in his honor as part of this week’s South FirstFridays walking art that will take place in downtown San Jose. It’s unfortunate that Luchetti isn’t able to be present at the show. He died from colon cancer at age of living in Murphys and where he’d taught for a while.
The year before, Anno Domini held a retrospective of Storey’s work dating back to his “golden years” as well as Cathy Luchetti, Zack’s mother, attended the showing due to her son’s admiration for the teacher he used to be. Upon her arrival, she inquired if the gallery on S. First St. could be interested in hosting her son’s art. Lakey commented that “Typically for submitted artworks, they’re never the right fit. But this was an incredible piece.” Lakey commented that Zack’s unique perception of the world and its inhabitants, along with his work in the BART Station and at various other venues make his work distinct in comparison to other submissions.
The performance was truly distinguished. Its name derives from a painting of an individual who is illuminating the wolves using an electric lightbulb. It is the efforts of Luchetti the elementary teacher in order to pass on wisdom to the students who refuse to listen. His other vivid works draw similarity to the work of Pablo Picasso, surrealist Salvador Dali, the muralist Diego Rivera, and even underground cartoonist R. Crumb; however their amalgamation is different from the point of view of Luchetti. Lakey declared that they were “amazingly complex.” “His work is full of layers of significance. These are the works that truly stirred my heart.
