About Pine Cone Bronze 22-557

This large bronze sculpture by Floyd Elzinga is simply a ‘knock-out’ with its bright turquoise patina. The Canadian sculptor is known for using iconic imagery in his pop artwork. The series of pine cones he’s created emulates the details of the natural form. Elzinga values the pinecone as an impressive seed that historically has survived nature’s challenges. His pinecones cleverly balance an industrial material with organic form. One in a series.

“My art is my forestry … I grew up on a farm and now I make metal seeds and flowers and I'm growing a metal garden." Floyd Elzinga

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 College of Art & Design in Halifax, NS.
