Years after the completion of “Hey Baal”, the artist set out to create a second version of the scrap metal bale. “Everything” literally contains almost everything including a kitchen sink. Drawing on nature’s imagery and pop culture, Floyd creates works that are both humourous and thought provoking, addressing the environment and man’s relationship to it. Attracted to steel due to its malleable and plastic and forgiving nature, Floyd challenges his knowledge with the material by using found objects and constructing them together much like a puzzle for this outdoor sculpture.
