Isaac Cordal Depicts Homelessness in New Series “Unfinished People in NYC”

by CaroPosted on

Isaac Cordal has been leaving his sculptures of tiny cement figures in cities all over the world for years. Featured on our blog, his artworks hidden in plain sight feature gloomy people wading helplessly in puddles, other times peering through cracks in the sidewalk and concrete walls. They are part of an ongoing series that he calls “Cement Eclipses”. Cordal explains, “Cement Eclipses is a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution.” The Spanish artist recently updated his site with his latest works, installed in New York City in November. Titled “Cement Eclipses: Unfinished People in NYC”, the series includes his familiar businessmen in moments of despair and contemplation and new pieces that portray homelessness. Placed in less public spaces like parking lots and train yards, some of his homeless figures appear to settle into the isolation that plagues their counterparts. Take a look at more photos of Isaac Cordal’s “Unfinished People in NYC” below, courtesy of the artist.
