VICTOR CICANSKY : THE GARDEN OF ART IS A NEVER-ENDING STORY: New Bronze and Ceramic Sculptures
My work is deeply rooted in the Garden. Walking up and down the garden paths, surrounded by apple trees, Saskatoon bushes, raspberry canes, sunflowers and perennial flower power, in the ever-changing creative vitality of my backyard garden, I'm never at a loss of ideas and inspiration
