Post-modernist, post-pop, post-feminist, but never post-apocalyptic, each generation feels that they must be closer than the last to a point of finality and destruction. It is the oldest revelation, mixing terror with hope, innovation with timeless tradition in the aesthetic of the monumental sublime. Taking images that are so familiar to us Le Corbusier's modernist housing units, the bellowing mushroom cloud of the atom bomb, the Statue of Liberty or Lichtenstein's rocket, the artists in Apopalyptical re-examine the pop banality of the regurgitated image, through the glitches and nuances of the artists' intervention.

Gordon Cheung has recently exhibited in Yes I am a Long Way from Home with Peter Doig, Paul Morrison and George Shaw at the Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Herbert Read Gallery and Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art; at Gallery Corridor, Iceland and the Chinese Arts Centre, Manchester.

Kenny Hunter has had numerous solo exhibitions including the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, and the Arnolfini, Bristol. Collections include the Scottish Arts Council, Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow, Aberdeen Art Gallery and the British School in Athens.

Matthew Radford currently has a solo exhibition at Gillingham Art Gallery and has recently started working on print projects with Alan Cristea Gallery, London. The Metropolitan Museum, New York and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London have just purchased new works.
