Richard Erdman to Exhibit New Sculpture at this year’s edition of the Art Miami Fair
November 20, 2017
We are thrilled to announce that Richard Erdman will exhibit four marble sculptures with the Montreal-based Landau Contemporary at Galerie Dominion during the Art Miami fair, December 5 through 10. Erdman will show work alongside Brussels-based painter Yves Zurstrassen. Erdman will be showing his sculptures “Fiamme,” “Muse Lu,” “Odyssey,” and “Sequita.” They are all part of a new body of white Carrara marble sculptures.
“For me, there is nothing more pure, pristine, and purposeful than creating a vibrant new form of life from Carrara white marble,” Erdman says in his artist statement from that show. “Its ancient formation from ocean-born organic carbonates resonate time and geologic history — first our beginnings and now our foundation.”
Landau Contemporary, the commercial branch of the prestigious Landau Fine Art gallery, has represented Erdman since 2012. Founder Robert Landau previously organized the installation of four monumental Erdman sculptures on the scenic grounds of the Enea Tree Museum in Switzerland. This is Landau’s first time showing Erdman’s works during Miami Art Week, the annual event that includes Art Basel, Art Miami, and more than 20 other satellite fairs.
That ancient material becomes ethereal and evocative in pieces such as “Fiamme,” “Muse Lu,” “Odyssey,” and “Sequita.” While each massive sculpture has considerable weight, their graceful forms seem to float above their marble supports with elegance and ease.
