Neleman’s highly individual assemblages focus on the harmony of opposites. He juxtaposes the vital and the mortal, as well as the myth and the modern tale. While referring at times to dark motifs, his work is also affectingly intriguing, as it is endowed with erotic symbolism and infused with emotional qualities that we recognize immediately as inherent to the human condition. Deeply interested in semiotics and its related disciplines, and a master assembler and conjuror of images, associations and feelings, Neleman reclaims, scrutinizes, and skillfully melds styles, cultures, eras, and emotive states of being into extraordinary works of art.
