The Lone Horseman of the Apopalypse
The malleability of the English language is truly fascinating. Combining two words into one, or portmanteau if you want to put a name on it, is a sort of weird thrill for me. And so it was when I read the title of Mauro Perucchetti‘s new exhibit at the Halcyon Gallery in London: Apopalyptic. A brilliant fusion of the apocalyptic times we seem to be living in, with a pop culture sensibility thrown in for good measure. Who says that doom and gloom always have to go together?
