"Glennray Tutor is my father and has exposed me to a lifetime of art. As I've grown up next to his work I've seen the metaphors and colors evolve throughout his subject matters and I've watched as he's become a master of the Photorealist genre. However, he likes to call his work, "Metarealism," or something beyond painting. Which, I believe, they certainly are."

One of my all time favorites.

great eye candy, diligent depiction & master of the fine ARTS I JUST LOVE art people like you.

I feel as though I'm looking at a photograph, not a painting, it's AMAZING. so much talent

OH MY GOD! Simply amazing.

are you sure that's not a photo????

OH i didn't read the description! WOW. a painting? very amazing

Oh! i saw the first pic and i thought that it was interesting then i scrolled. The one with the comics and marbles, my spanish teacher uses as her computer background. I always thought it was interesting. What fascinating photographs!

Actually My impression was looking at the transition of childhood to early adolescence....

The marbles symbolize "Childhood" and the comics represent "fantasy or Fiction" And if you read the comics the characters within the comics represent life situations such as reciprocated love from one to another not being offered... Or a sense of betrayal between fantasy and reality...

That's a painting? WOW...

An outstanding painter and a nice gentleman. I've enjoyed seeing Glennray's work at Jay Etkin Gallery in Memphis and the new one in Santa Fe.
