Floyd Elzinga
Unzip the Earth SOD

2018

About

Unzip the Earth is a playful, outdoor sculptural installation consisting of a polished and reflective steel zipper handle and concrete brick teeth that give the illusion of unzipping the hillside. The exaggerated size of this everyday object that the artist has transformed into fine art is Pop art inspired. This outdoor artwork is available by commission only which may take up to 3 or more months to complete. Pictured here is the artist's proof. Installation instructions are included. For convenience of shipping, the brick 'teeth' may be sourced locally. The price indicated here is for the stainless steel Zipper sculpture only. Measurements indicated here are based on Zipper sculpture only. Height of Zipper pull can be adjusted. The installation scale of this sculpture is variable, depending on the length of the zipper. 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 southern Ontario. Floyd received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in Halifax, NS.
