Victor Cicansky: Clay Sculpture

July 25 - August 25, 1983

"In the process of gaining maturity as an artist Victor Cicansky has taken an extensive art vocabulary which he chose to develope within the language of sculpture, clay sculpture, and applied it to imagery he plucks from his personal past and present. Because his past and present is steeped in real and honest tradition, that inherited by a second-generation western Canadian of east European (Romanian) heritage, his art is what it is, an affirmation of cyclical existence expressed through archetypal references... His work encounters memory (but a specific memory), more reverie than recall — an elaboration of memory tinged with surrealistic interpretation." Essay by Bruce W. Ferguson and Carol A. Philips, curators.
