Ray Hare
Realism takes on new dimensions through the eyes of artist Ray Hare. His paintings are photorealism but his art goes beyond realistic likeness. In his work the larger than life close-ups are depicted with all their infinite color and details. It is as if he held a magnifying glass up to his subject and painted what he saw. What Hare captures as a result is a new reality.
His unique vision through enlarged images and illusions is shared through paintings that grasp the essence of his subjects. The emotional impact of each painting confronts and challenges us to view reality with renewed emotion. He incorporates conceptual studies with practical mastery of fine art, testing each image and medium to its limit. The subjects seem so real we believe we can reach out and touch them.

Native Californian Ray Hare has expressed himself through art at an early age. In high school he won numerous state and national competitions. He received a full scholarship to California College of Arts and Crafts where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts with High Distinction. Ray then went to San Francisco State University to receive his Masters of Fine Art.

Ray Hare is based in Orange County, California where he and his wife Susan raised their three children. His art has been shown in numerous museums including San Francisco Museum of

Modern Art, DeYoung Museum, Oakland Museum, Crocker Kingsley Art Museum and the Los

Angeles Art Institute. Many prominent corporations and institutions have added his work to their collections. He was commissioned by ABC to paint a portrait of Oprah Winfrey for her private collection, by NBC to paint a portrait of Elizabeth Taylor for her private collection and by Fox Network to paint a portrait of Ray Charles. His work is in numerous private collections through out the United States and Europe.
