Synopsis:

Elegant, surreal, erotic, ecological, autobiographical, perpetual, populist, comic! These are the words that describe the work of noted Regina sculptor Victor Cicansky. The book celebrates the voice, life, and art of this prolific prairie-based artist. Nature, tamed or wild, informs everything he makes; worlds we recognize with pleasure, where cabbages are kings. This book is written in a style that is informed yet not overburdened with critical analysis, allowing the art to speak for itself.

About the Author
