Selected Exhibitions

  The Gardener's Universe  

Victor Cicansky during his Artist Talk at the opening of The Gardener's Universe at the Confederation Centre for the Arts in Charlottetown, March 2020.

The artistic universe of Regina sculptor Victor Cicansky is firmly rooted in his garden. For over fifty years, ideas for sculptures in ceramics and bronze have grown out of his intimate relationship with the plants and trees of his back yard. His approach embraces both the immigrant knowledge of his Romanian-Canadian family, and more contemporary concerns around urban ecology and environmental sustainability.

Rooted in local realities, his work speaks to the wider world of the joys and trials of supporting life in an urban prairie space.

This retrospective exhibition brings together over 100 ceramic and bronze works that present a richly layered picture of Cicansky’s career.

      “What are you doing that’s going to make the world
a better place? When you garden, you do.”
— Victor Cicansky
