aPOPcalypse Now

‘aPOPcalypse Now’ an entirely new body of work, is not only the show title but derives it’s name from the term D*Face uses to define his work – aPOPcalyptic –  A metaphorical backdrop for the corruptive persuasive consumerist folly that has been force fed into our society for the last 5 decades. The imagery delivers the viewer a moral dilema, embrace or reject, laugh or deny.

‘aPOPcalypse Now’ featured over 20 new paintings, sculptural works and street installations and saw the release of a limited edition 18 colour screen print and etching, a que formed the morning the show was due to open and all prints and work had sold out on the opening night.

‘My work reflects our popular culture encompassing the American dream and ideal of good triumphing over evil, no longer relevant in todays society where the invade now and ask questions later philosophy isn’t tolerated or indeed wanted, colliding cultures are no longer receptive to the American way, the Superheros triumph of good over evil as portrayed through the political circus is now decoded through the eyes of cultures weary and wary of the sub plot played in todays political climate, where war equals brand invasion’.
