Description

Des tableaux luminescents forment le focus visuel de Mary Pratt, une rétrospective de sa carrière qui examine chaque aspect du parcours créatif de Pratt. Les peintures de Mary Pratt — y compris Œufs dans un casier, Saumon sur Saran, Poulets éviscérés, Filets de morue sur papier d'aluminium, Je vous présente Donna — ont atteint un statut d'icône. Capturant ce qu'elle décrit comme les choses de la vie, l' œuvre de Mary Pratt élève le mondain au monumental, créant des moments silencieux qui sont infusés de signification.

Ce volume majeur, le premier sur le travail de Mary Pratt depuis presque vingt ans, présente soixante-quinze reproductions de ses œuvres les plus célèbres ainsi que des essais de cinq des écrivains canadiens les plus talentueux : la journaliste et critique de l'art Sarah Milroy; Catharine Mastin de la Galerie d'art de Windsor; Mireille Eagan et Caroline Stone du Musée provincial de beaux-arts The Rooms et Ray Cronin et Sarah Fillmore du Musée des beaux-arts de la Nouvelle-Écosse. Ensemble ils créent un dialogue autour de la technique et des influences de Pratt, examinant les thèmes qui tissent son art en long et en large : le rôle du lieu et de la biographie personnelle, le passage du temps, l'acte simple de regarder et, bien sûr, les choses de la vie.

Le livre Mary Pratt est conçu pour accompagner une exposition organisée par le Musée provincial des beaux-arts The Rooms et le Musée des beaux-arts de la Nouvelle-Écosse et présentée en tournée nationale.
