"The result is oddly biodiverse landscape reminiscent of those conjured by Italo Calvino’s stories erring on the magical side of magical realism. Having reappropriated this imagery of nature from commercial products, Percoco effectively removes it from the sterile world of corporate advertising and places it squarely back in the realm of imagination. In so doing, Parallel Botany reveals the possibility of fecundity in the most unlikely of places: the trash heap." -- Lorissa Rinehart, Art and Object

"At a glance, many of the Parallel Botany plants appear unremarkable. It’s only through a closer look that you notice their strange bending of reality or unnatural colors." -- Allison Meier, Hyperallergic
