The Power of Love: Madison Gallery, La Jolla, CA
"Perucchetti takes society to task for its ridiculous preoccupation with brand names, he attacks distortion of religion, jokes about recycling and addresses addiction. He engages with social concerns without moralising and without the anger of many of his contemporaries. Asked in early 2009 why he makes art, he explained: "I wish I could be a politician to govern fairly, a religious leader to guide pragmatically and a powerful entrepreneur to serve as an example and inspiration to others, but I can't. However what I can do, hopefully, is create art that makes people think about global issues."
