Victor Cicansky

1935 -
OC

Victor Cicansky was born in Regina, Saskatchewan and is a graduate of the Education Department of the University of Saskatchewan (1964). He then went on to the University of Regina where he received a Bachelor of Arts (1965) and then attained a Master of Fine Arts in 1974 from the University of California at Davis. He is known for his whimsical, witty and finely made work in bronze and ceramic. Cicansky grew up in the Regina community of Garlic Flats, a region known for its abundant production of vegetables. Grounded in the real gardens of his community, his work leaps from reality into the fertile garden of his imagination, where his ideas are given free reign. He has executed many large-scale public art commissions, including The Garden of the Mind at the College of Agriculture Building in Saskatoon. Smaller works include the Creation Series, which makes a visual play on the image of the hand of God bringing Adam to life (as painted by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel), where instead Cicansky uses the work-worn hand of a farmer to bring potatoes, tomatoes and other vegetables to life. In the series Erotic Hybrids, amorous vegetables recline on overstuffed furniture. His functional work includes tables, benches and plates entwined with pear trees, grapevines and corn.

Cicansky is the recipient of numerous awards including the Order of Canada (2009), the Victoria and Albert Award for Ceramic Sculpture and the Saskatchewan Lieutenant-Governor's Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts, which he won in 2012. His works have been exhibited widely across Canada, in the United States and Japan as well as Europe, and his work is found in many public and corporate art collections. In addition to producing his own art, Cicansky has influenced the lives of many younger Canadian artists, having taught at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, the University of California at Davis and the Banff Centre in Alberta. In 1994 he retired as Professor Emeritus from the University of Regina, where he taught for over 20 years. He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from this same institution in 2007.
