In the work of E. R. Nele articulate very versatile talents and she is spoken of as one of the most versatile artists:inside and designers:inside. She designed and made furniture, jewelry and even cutlery collections, and it always seems that all these objects, and each considered as a part in itself, is just another sculptural possibility-forming.
What becomes apparent here, and can be filtered out as the quintessence of E. R. Nele's design and artistic work, is that everything she creates consists of a relational interplay of floor and wall works and autonomous objects in space. Designing lamps and home interiors has something to do, at least in E. R. Nele's case, with creating emotions, no less emotionally charged is how she repeatedly brings the human figure to view as the central theme of her work. For by far the figurative motif occupies the largest part in her life's work, mostly in metal execution, but always with a view to the psychological and physical vulnerability of the human being. All this is a reason for the Museum Angewandte Kunst to organize a studio exhibition for E. R. Nele on the occasion of her 90th birthday
