His work has consistently explored the dialogue of narrative tropes in an image soaked contemporary environment. Early works found pop-inspired imagery creating new contexts from photojournalism and advertising with highly detailed enlarged objects placed out of their environment. Successive shows moved on to use and explore cinematic stills as the source of a visual collective consciousness incorporating the vocabulary of cinematography and the expediency of digital photography as an inspiration for the new artworks.


In the latest body of work, the Dutch artist Nemo Jantzen goes beyond telling a one image story and depicting a voyeuristic look into another world and reality.

By carefully selecting hundreds of photographic images by colour and theme Nemo takes Neo-pointillism to the next level exploring the dialogue of narrative tropes in an image soaked in a contemporary environment and the collective unconscious. A magical plethora of colors with hundreds of images depicting, stories, momentous, personal experiences and cinematographic scenes encapsulated in crystal spheres that together form large compositions and portraits reflecting an idealized world filtered through the demands of the eye of the beholder.
