Jerry Cornelia Art

Jerry Cornelia is primarily a self-taught artist. From the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, Cornelia lived and worked in New York painting mannequins, more than 17,000 of them. This experience gave Cornelia strong focusing ability and great knowledge of color. Cornelia exclaims, "You'd be amazed at how many different colors it takes to get the right red for a certain lip color!" Whether it be on some of the tighter, almost trompe l'oeil styled works or the looser, evident brushstroke pieces, his affection for and skills with mixing colors are obvious and unique. During his New York years, Cornelia also worked in design, which included the Christmas window displays for Saks Fifth Avenue. Cornelia also created functional pieces, from birdhouses to clocks, chairs and tables. At the same time, Cornelia began sculpting classical forms and developed a diverse portfolio of paintings, including surrealistic neo-expressionism and neo-primitive styles.
