Richard Erdman's soaring, delicate ribbons of stone and bronze are in constant apparent movement, defying gravity yet striking a formidable balance between fluidity and poise. It is the adventure and challenge of life that he strives to express in these works that belie the inherently weighty qualities of the material he cherishes.

The mastery and spirit that Erdman's work exudes has created an enormous international following. Shown in over 130 solo and group exhibitions throughout North America and abroad, his work is also in extensive private collections in over 40 countries worldwide. In 1985, PepsiCo, whose then Chairman Donald M. Kendall built what has been called the finest collection of major 20th Century outdoor sculpture, commissioned Erdman to create the monumental sculpture entitled 'Passage.' The twenty-five-foot long, sixteen-foot high piece is the largest sculpture in the world carved from a single piece of marble. Cut from a 320-ton block of travertine, 'Passage' embodies lightness, fluidity and grace, epitomizing Erdman's matchless skill as an artist and a master carver.
