"Life is not grafted on a straight line," says Mary. "Emotions follow the similar path of highs and lows." Mary captured the essence of these concepts in Let Go. "I have found in times of great change it serves a greater purpose to not hold on and allow the newness to present itself. This piece is the embodiment of letting go, as the figure is surrounded by white birds representing freedom in contrast to the woman's protective stance."
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
