Crossing High Street

Artist

Name: Cody Heichel
Statement: In "Crossing High Street" the viewer is placed in the center of a wet, busy intersection in downtown Columbus. Some pedestrians casually walk to their destination under the protection of their umbrellas, while others scurry along in their best attempts to stay dry. Cars don't quite make it through red lights, causing buses and trucks squeak to a stop behind them. The weather is not inviting, but everyone continues about their days regardless. This is an enticing subject matter for me, and one that I am continually drawn to. The sound and movement of the subject are just as inspirational to me as the visual components are. My hope is to capture all of these elements in my work, so that the scene might play out like memory for the viewer. One that is imperfect, and void of the sharp details, but recalls what it felt like to traverse that busy intersection
