Heidi Cody was born in New Haven, CT, aised in Paris, France until age 8 and lived in Brooklyn NY from 1998-2008.
She describes her work “Crude” by saying, “Ten vacuum-formed plastic and steel signs depicting the abstracted logos of the ten oil companies traded on the N.Y.S.E. The size of each sign corresponds to each company’s total gross revenues in 2001. Exxon Mobil, the largest at 7.25′ x 7.25′ x 2′, was in “Open House: Working in Brooklyn,” at the Brooklyn Museum. Several of these editioned signs have sold into private collections.”
