Identity Mask #5
16 x 10 in (41 x 24 cm)
Jerry Coker was born in Arkansas, but has resided in Florida for most of his life. His collection "Identity Masks" of masks made with rusted roofing tin are modeled after people from his rural childhood who were patrons of his parent's furniture store. His rural background largely influenced his artistic style, and he considers himself a "Renaissance Man" with a specialization in folk art. His art is featured in many imporant collections across the United States, including the Microsoft Corporation collection.
