The principle characteristics of Magical Realism are political critique, hybridity and collective consciousness; ideas shared by each of the artists exhibited in strikingly different ways. Fantastical elements are infused with the everyday to represent a heightened sense of reality. Heffernan is concerned with the sense of self as a political agenda; Maeda questions the very notion of existence by representing a hybrid of life and death, while Thompsett represents the collective consciousness by suffusing landscapes with states of human emotion.
