About the Work
The exaggerated size of this 23 inch high, Pop art inspired weathered, corten steel pine cone transforms an everyday object into fine art. Each of Elzinga's unique steel pine cones is stamped with a number and this piece may be set outside as garden sculpture or indoors. Floyd Elzinga's work explores traditional landscape through non-traditional techniques. Strongly influenced by the natural and cultivated environment surrounding his studio on the Niagara Escarpment, each creation is a direct reference to his distinctly Canadian perspective. Elzinga's pine cone sculptures have been featured as part of Toronto's Scotiabank Nuit Blanche celebration of contemporary art, and his work is held in collections across southern Ontario. Elzinga received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in Halifax, NS.
