Mary Pratt, Maryland, Winter 2019, painting

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 synergy 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.

Manuel Ojea, Las Tunas, Cuba/Valencia, Spain, Summer/Fall 2017, painting

To feel nostalgia is, in its strict sense, to notice a deep pain when remembering something that is no longer here: a person, the longing for a particular time or the place or origin of each one. To get used to it is to live constantly in the memory of an idyllic time.

Ulf Enhorning, born in Stockholm, Sweden, grew up in Sweden, Canada and the United States. At an early age his grandmother, Louise Peyron, also a painter, introduced him to the works of old masters at galleries in Stockholm. She told him stories about their lives and also encouraged his interest to draw and sculpt his siblings. Salvador Dali was Ulf's greatest hero at this time, but when he later immigrated to Toronto with his family at the age of 15, he was greatly inspired by the mystical landscape paintings of Lawren Harris.
