Floyd Elzinga
Sacrifice - Wind Swept Maple Leaf

2013

About

Bent back against a fictional gust of wind, this sculpture illustrates and captures the essence of forces both gentle and destructive. Windswept maple leaf is constructed out of a solid stainless steel and woven wire mesh, attached to a weathering steel base, which takes the realistic and fragmented form of a branch. 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 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. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in Halifax, NS.
