This painting is part of Mary Pratt's continuing series of geishas, specifically focusing on the kimono. "In this piece, the bright kimono is an abstract element and focal point of the larger composition," says Mary. "I am working to bring to life the geisha as an archetype of the ancient practice of conversation, dance and song. As a child, I was enamored by the delicate features of the geisha's beauty; I am driven to paint their exquisite aesthetics."
Mary Pratt, a Georgia-based artist, is known for her impressionistic yet modern oil paintings that capture the world with a jovial poise. Her soft, ethereal palette is complemented by the occasional bright pop of color. The artist’s aesthetic choices are intuitive rather than premeditated. Through her gestural brushstrokes, Mary’s paintings summon a joyful, even childlike, emotional response. Her style is nuanced by a range of inspirations, including scenery from the state of Georgia. The personal edge that Mary brings to each painting alters and enhances recognizable subject matter, cultivating an imaginative visual experience.

We love this new art in our dining room. We've probably bought 40-50 original art works from UGallery and have been very, very happy being a customer here.- J Linehan
Your painting, "Magic," arrived today and it is even lovelier than it appeared to be on the website. I find your style extremely appealing and am thrilled to have chosen it. It will definitely take the place on my wall where the "former favorite" now hangs.- S Burke
