Releases: Glennray Tutor – “Trio (Dreams Can Come True)” Print

American painter Glennray Tutor (interviewed) released his first ever limited edition print on November 4th, exclusively through Supersonic Art Gallery. Trio (Dreams Can Come True) is a classic example of his recent photorealistic metaphorical paintings that look at dimensions beyond our realization. Considered to be part of the photorealism art movement, Tutor has been painting almost exclusively still life’s since the 1980s. Composing images with the small commonplace artifacts of daily life, often nostalgic items such as glass jars, bottles, toys, and especially fireworks or marbles, […]

Openings: Hajime Sorayama @ Jacob Lewis Gallery

Last night, Jacob Lewis Gallery held the opening reception for their inaugural show with Hajime Sorayama. A few weeks after announcing his representation, the Chelsea-based gallery revealed his newest body of work featuring his signature Sexy Robots.
