Mary Pratt Quotes

Quotes by Mary Pratt - (5 quotes)

Mary Pratt - From the Faith category:

Mary Pratt - From the Painting category:

The fact is that until I saw paintings as icons, I couldn't see why people painted at all. (Mary Pratt)

Mary Pratt - From the Religion category:

When I'm painting them, the whole legend and mythology of apples occurs to me, and so Adam and Eve and the snake and all the rest of it somehow gets into the picture. (Mary Pratt)

Mary Pratt - From the Strength category:

My only strength is finding something where most people would find nothing. (Mary Pratt)

Mary Pratt - From the Theory category:

I can't stand theory because it is imposed by the intellectual. And the intellectual is, by definition, not a creative person. The intellectual is a person who talks about the creative process, but often doesn't understand it. (Mary Pratt)
