About Pine Cone 23-031

He has been making art since he was in Grade one. Canadian sculptor Floyd Elzinga has always had a profound love and respect for nature. Now living on the Niagara escarpment in Ontario, the forests that surround his home provide constant inspiration. Elzinga’s iconic series of pine cones—this one in weathering steel are both realistic and exquisite in their detail. This large outdoor sculpture can sit upright or lay down.

“Floyd does in three dimensions what the Group of Seven did in two, his style is particularly his own”. – J. Long, art critic

His pinecone sculptures have been featured as part of Toronto’s Scotiabank Nuit Blanche celebration of contemporary art, and his work is held in collections across Ontario and in the US. Elzinga received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Nova Scotia
