Born in Grand Rapids, MI., Eddie Parach’s first medium was music. He began studying piano at the age of five and eventually earned a B.A. in Music from Western Michigan University. Parach began sculpting over 20 years ago to express his ideas about nature, humanity and life in a more permanent and less elusive and transitory medium than music. In those years, his work has evolved from carving to assemblage and from indigenous hardwoods to hardwoods, stone, metal and cast plaster. His most recent series is an exploration of winter landscapes. Parach works from studios in Saugatuck, Michigan and Mana Contemporary Chicago. His work is in private collections in Florida, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Washington and Israel.
