Vintage photographs inspired this work. Capitalizing on the sixties stretch pants I created patterns in thick impasto to accentuate the feminine shape. The colors are mostly muted with pops of whites in the fabric and in the background.  This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. The work comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Mary

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.
