Book Description
Insightful and thought-provoking journal entries, from the 1950s to 2007, on the creative process, art, life, and province of renowned Canadian artist Christopher Pratt. Ordinary Things is laced with astute observations that summarize the artistic process, and the motivations and contemplations of not only an artist, but any man. It contains slices of truth about life and Newfoundland itself, and the dynamic world of the ordinary, of which Pratt has drawn so heavily on in his work. These passages have an obvious appeal to anyone in the arts, though they will have a deep resonance with a broader audience as well.

About the Author
Christopher Pratt is one of Canada’s most prominent painters and printmakers. Throughout his career, he has received many honours, including being named a Companion of the Order of Canada and receiving several honourary doctoral degrees. Pratt also designed the provincial flag of Newfoundland and Labrador, and has work included in major collections, both public and private, throughout Canada and other parts of the world. Retrospectives of his work have been organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery in 1985, and again in 2005 by the National Gallery of Canada. He continues, since 1963, to live and work in his studio in St. Mary’s Bay.
