Synopses & Reviews
Isaac Cordal is a sculpture artist from London whose sculptures take the form of little people sculpted from concrete and placed in real situations. Cordal manages to capture much emotion in his vignettes, in spite of the little people's lack of detail or color. He is sympathetic toward his little people and we empathize with their situations, their leisure time, their waiting for buses and their more tragic moments such as accidental death, suicide or family funerals. His sculptures can be found in gutters, on top of buildings,
on top of bus shelters - and in many other unusual and unlikely places. This book is the first time his images have been shown together, and many images have never been seen. Cordal's concrete sculptures are captivating dioramas, left to their own devices throughout London. A few lucky people will see and love them incarnate, but so many more will have missed out. What really makes these pieces magical is their placement in the urban environment.
