PORTALS is the debut art album of Glennray Tutor, a painter listed among the top 50 hyperrealists in the world. Tutor is known for his use of bright colors, detail, and metaphor. At first glance his paintings look like photos but they are paintings with incredible detail. Tutor's early landscape paintings celebrate the unsung corners of the Deep South and his later still life paintings push the edge of American pop art. His still life subject matter consists of small commonplace artifacts of daily life such as canning jars, cola bottles, toys, marbles, comic books, and fireworks. "Glennray Tutor's metaphorical paintings look at dimensions beyond our realization. Universes, emotions, ideas-here existing as translucent marbles-constantly affect our two dimensional reality, causing us to fall in love, feel loss or believe in something more as their colors shine across us without our even knowing."
