Mary Pratt

Mary Pratt – bold, flamboyant, using photographic projections to paint her masterful still life’s.

Her art focussed on everyday household items – apples, jars of jelly, paper bags, aluminum foil.

Her colours jump off the canvass – dramatic – not your usual, usual, colours.

In the magazine, Canadian Art, Mary said:

““Titanium White, Cadmium Pale Yellow or Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Red Light, Cadmium Orange, Permanent Rose, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, and Permanent Deep Green. I sometimes use Mauve, but only lately. I never use black except in watercolour; it takes the dance out of the painting, the dance that colour gives you. Instead, I mix up three dark colours.”

The impact powerful, dramatic, memorable.

Her paintings provoking questions.

Her art a reflection of her domestic life in rural Newfoundland.

Art that speaks to us and we all can relate to.
