DescriptionJill Sablosky (American, 20th century)
Limestone, slate and crystal
62 x 34 x 34 inches (157.5 x 86.4 x 86.4 cm)
Jill Sablosky's career in sculpting has skyrocketed since her 1979 graduation from the University of Pennsylvania with a Master of Fine Arts degree. While she has exhibited abroad, her focus during the early part of her career was to sculpt and exhibit in Pennsylvania and Texas where she participated in the Century of Sculpture in Texas traveling exhibition from 1989 to 1990, just a year after she sculpted this remarkable limestone work, Ladyshrine.
"Stone is my inspiration and medium" Sablosky says, partly inspired by her time spent living in the fossil stone regions of Texas. Indeed she used Texas limestone to complete this 62-inch sculpture in which she integrated slate and crystal to produce a multi-dimensional, attractive form, achieving what she has described as, "a language in stone."
Ladyshrine was completed as part of a private commission for the Dallas World Trade Center from which Sablosky's commission work spread across the United States and Italy. Her signature pieces on the grand scale such as Ladyshrine appear all over America in notable settings such as the renowned architect I. M. Pei's Sculpture Garden at Philadelphia and the Federal Building in San Antonio.
Acquired from the artist in 1989.
