Heather Cox is an artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She received her early training in books arts and photography at Mills College. She went on to study sculpture at the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture and to receive her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Heather’s artwork is quirky and seductive. It is often characterized by precisely-crafted objects that involve repetition and shifting scale. She employs a variety of materials in her projects – paper, pins, erasers, aspirin and frosting – to address issues of visibility, discovery and metamorphosis. Her work investigates objects that internally and externally support the body, such as chairs, crutches and bones. Each piece invites a closer look. The viewer’s physical approach is often accompanied by curiosity, confusion and moments of recognition. “What is that?” is the common refrain. Heather’s work is designed to act as a catalyst for these momentary thresholds.
