1Q84 is inspired by Murakami’s novel of the same name in which the notion of an alternate reality is evoked.

Pru’s images reveal the false values and wastefulness of rampant consumerism along with an expectation of perfection. Her images evoke a fantasy world that is simultaneously beautiful and disturbing. Meanwhile Rosemary’s work reminds us of the continuing obsession with the search for beautiful bodies and of the masking, disguising or concealing of reality to evoke another mysterious, whimsical “no-where” fantasy world.
