From his studio on the Niagara escarpment, Canadian artist Floyd Elzinga creates work that merges iconic imagery from the landscape – the maple leaf, pine branch and pinecone – with pop art to create pieces that are playful and inspiring. Elzinga views the pinecone as a ‘colonization’ device that establishes itself in a natural setting. His pinecone is an exploration of the nature of seeds and highlights their aggressive regeneration. This small spruce cone in stainless steel beautifully balances an industrial material with a natural form. The steel was heated to give it a golden patina. “The natural world is fundamentally my inspiration, and it is strongly reflected in my subject matter.” 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.
