Richard Erdman, A Retrospective is a definitive book and documentary project that spans 30 years of the artist’s work in a 230-page, 10 x 12.5 inch Hardcover book. With over 200 color plates, this stunning monograph includes essays by noted art critic Peter Frank and a DVD with both a documentary about the artist by award-winning filmmaker Amanda Zackem titled “Richard Erdman: A Profile” and a newly edited version of the award winning documentary “Passage”.
“Erdman creates sculptures designed to make a visceral and somatic connection with us. They stop us in our tracks not simply to admire or stroke them, but to sense them and experience their movement as much as their presence. He speaks constantly of the viscerality he seeks, a viscerality inherent to the very purpose of sculpture.”
— Peter Frank, Art Critic
