The earth has been shaped, both physically and socially, by a striking landscape carved out by glaciers. However, with the acceleration of global climate change, these glaciers are shrinking at a rapid pace, causing environmental and social upheaval. It is the shrinking borders of glaciers — and the forces causing this change — that I am focusing on in this body of work.
This series consists of a graphite renderings of satellite imagery of Icelandic glaciers and mountain-top removal sites in West Virginia. The creation of these works was funded in part by a Puffin Foundation grant, and completed at Nes Artist Residency in Skagaströnd, Iceland, summer 2013.
The drawings are also published in a short book, Burning Ice, available online.

CEMENT ECLIPSES @ CHIAPAS MEXICO
Artist Isaac Cordal (tumblr / facebook) - “With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. 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. With the master touch of a stage director, the figures are placed in locations that quickly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being”.
