I’m currently drafting my press release for the AIR show in June…. Here’s what I have so far for the paragraph about these collages:
For the last few months, Percoco has been cutting out images of trees from greater-New York area phone book ads. She has assembled them into landscape collages. These forested vistas can be seen as subliminal natural landscapes of New York. That the phone books themselves are made from trees unites image with substance, or representation with presentation. Although the graphic style of the trees runs the gamut from color photographs to black and white cartoons, the collages are unified by a consistent horizon and a sense of depth. She uses a shifting perspective to describe the changing viewpoint we experience while moving through a landscape.
