AGNS     Heritage

Mary Pratt is one of Canada’s leading photorealist painters. She brings a sharply focused, contemporary lens to deceptively simple subject matter, demonstrating sophisticated skill rooted firmly in the history of painting. Nuance of tone, angle and choice of perspective leave the viewers of Mary Pratt’s images with a sense of wonder and, sometimes, unease. Mary Pratt’s work reveals the breath of emotion, technique and maturity brought to her practice. This solo exhibition, the first in a public institution since 2004, offers visitors a rare opportunity to view the range, subtlety and power of this much-celebrated artist’s work.
