Jane Jaskevich creates elegant figurative stone and mixed-media sculptures. Her mystical figures exude elegant strength. Sculpted with tools and techniques both modern and ancient, her contrasting colors, lines, and surfaces create majestic forms that feel simultaneously contemporary and classical.

Jane earned her BFA from the University of Georgia and her MFA in Art Education from Florida State University. Her work has been shown in over 80 group and solo exhibitions throughout the United States and is part of several permanent collections.

My stone sculptures are mystical in nature. The art reflects the coexistence of the conscious and subconscious, the symbolic and literal, and the ancient and modern.

Being a direct carver, I draw directly on the stone. With an idea in my mind, I start chiseling. I usually start with an idea that revolves around the human form. It may be a piece of wood that inspires me because it suggests a drapery or a broken stone that looks like a silhouette. It is a discovery of the unconscious. Your hands follow what your creative self dictates. My art usually evolves as I create it.

I am especially interested in combining various materials. I pay homage to the Greco-Roman roots of stone in sculpture. I incorporate broken torsos like in Greco-Roman ruins. From the Romans, I borrowed the combining of different stones in one figure.

Lately, I have been creating full-figure images from cypress and stone. The figures are about the gesture of the figure and the various combinations of the different stones. Contrasting the angular with the curvilinear shapes is of interest to me.

My stone sculptures invite the viewer to interpret, thus creating their own stories.
