One of the things you have to wonder about in looking at Neleman's unusual still lifes is what inspires his unusual constructions. Two of his prime sources of inspiration, he says, are travel and objects.

"I'm always writing little things down the way a poet might, sitting on the bus, writing on the back of the ticket," he says. "I always say if you don't keep your eyes in your pockets you'll see everything - there's information everywhere and there's stuff that you absorb."
