      Artist Statement

      Jeremy Gluck Expatriate Canadian, for two decades Wales-based, Jeremy Gluck works as a neurodiverse postdigital fine artist in NFT, digital art, film, installation, and performance. In July 2019 he presented his paper (well-received by former Tate archivist Andrew Wilson) on Gustav Metzger at the UWTSD Nexus Learning and Teaching Conference in Swansea, Wales.

A film co-created by Gluck is now part of the BFI archive. His work has been collected by private collectors in Finland, Spain, and the UK. His work is represented in Wales by Tides Fine Art Gallery, Mumbles, Swansea, Wales.

      Incorporating live coding, glitch, field recordings, spoken word, and photography, his work, with its soothing yet unsettling atmosphere, responds to the world within, the non-place of the subconscious, and its diverse expressions.
