The main focus of Jordan Parah's work is equality in our society; equal rights portrayed through large-scale sculpture. She challenges the intrinsic properties of metals and forms them into unique, harmonious compositions that exemplify coexistence. In her research she seeks to connect contrasting metal forms, shapes and colors to create a nexus between the sculpture and the fundamental principle, that all people are different yet all are equal. Parah's current work utilizes aluminum, steel, bronze, and stainless steel, some in combination, to create balance and harmony out of diversity.
She is originally from Greensboro, NC and graduated from East Carolina University with a B.F.A. in Sculpture and a minor in Art History. She creates metal fabricated sculptures using steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and bronze. Her sculptures are in public and private collections throughout North Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee. Parah works at City Art Gallery while maintaining a studio in Greenville, NC.
