About the Exhibit

The setting is our dystopian “Now” – An ‘End of Times’ scenario we’ve warned ourselves of, time and time again, form holy book to comic book to utter disregard.

 But this is self-fulfilling prophecy we’re enacting. The true apocalypse we face is to our imminent destruction, but the revelation of our untapped potential and the quantum poetic forces at play towards our shared evolution.

 With “Strange Tales From The Apocalypse Heart” Michael Pope continues to tell the non-linear love story of that shared evolution through painting, sculpture, digital art, and found objects.
