Most aspiring artists’ dream is to quit their 9-to-5. Isaac Cordal’s miniature sculptures make us acutely aware of the soul-sucking nature of a creatively unstimulating environment driven by habit and routine. Cordal molds legions of tiny, middle-aged men in suits who navigate dreary, oppressive environments. He places them in dioramas and sometimes even outdoors, creating scenes by utilizing elements of the existing architecture. His solo show “Moments de Solitude” opens on February 5 at Spacejunk Art Centers in Bayonne, France and will be on view there through April 4. The exhibit will travel to Spacejunk’s other locations in Lyon (April 16 through June 6) and Grenoble (June 19 through July 25).
