In the latest series, Inspired by media, pop culture, and film Jantzen takes Neo-pointillism to the next level utilizing thousands collection of photography, cinematographic stills, and other collected material encapsulated in glass spheres; hiding and revealing a subject filtered idealized world through the eye of the beholder and depicting the banality of our society and trends in symbolic evocation of a contemporary human journey. The artist is not interested in fragmentation of objects in the real world; he is interested in disclosing the unity underlying “reality”.
Nemo goes beyond telling a one image story and depicting a voyeristic look into another world(s) and reality. With large scale images built up out of hundreds of small image; stories incapsulated in glass spheres the work simply keeps repeating to the viewers “The closer you look, the less you see.”
