Cody Heichel is a visual artist who works primarily in watercolor. He is represented by Brandt-Roberts Galleries in Columbus. Cody is a Signature Member of the Ohio Watercolor Society, and an Associate Member of the American Watercolor Society. He will be part of the Greater Columbus Arts Council 2018 Artist Exchange in Dresden, Germany, where he will paint on location in a two-month residency.
“The work I create serves as a physical documentation of my daily surroundings and a visual commentary on the people and structures I encounter,” says Cody. “I aim to explore the idea of place identity by focusing on subjects and compositions found on the periphery of my environment. Through my depictions of both urban and rural locales, I aim to convey that I am deeply rooted and informed by both settings. I employ both traditional and contemporary techniques to create paintings which are visually representational of life, while still inviting a certain level of interpretation by the viewer.”
Cody’s piece “Elevator” will be featured in Art for Life on September 15. See more of his work at www.codyheichel.com.
