Online Artist Talk: Jeremy Gluck | 11th November 2020

elysium gallery in partnership with Beep2020 continues with its series of special online artists talks and invites you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Topic: Too Many Painters – Jeremy Gluck

Time: 11th Nov, 7.30pm

Jeremy Gluck MArts is an expatriate Canadian, UK-based conceptual intermedia artist. A graduate of Swansea College of Art, he works mainly with contemporary strategies, by rejecting an objective truth and global cultural narratives. In work demonstrating a gentle radicalism within his creative process that embodies the political polemics of the Dadaists in a contemporary context, often humorous, or provocative, Gluck creates work in which a fascination with the clarity of content and an uncompromising attitude towards conceptual and minimal art collides with ambiguity and concealment. His background is multidisciplinary, spanning, writing, music, and art. Inspired by Gustav Metzger, the Fluxus artists, Bacon, William Burroughs, and the Beats, his aspiration is to communicate visually so that the viewer is part of a unitive, experiential energy, merging space, place and meaning. Jeremy Gluck has exhibited in London, Sydney, and Swansea (including a year ago as Elysium’s Art in the Bar artist), and has been curated this year for the Bath Arts Fringe, and SHIFT (Glasgow) festivals. He is a co-founder of Swansea’s Axe Head Collective, and an intern of GS Artists.

Gluck’s BEEP talk, TOO MANY PAINTERS, will provide an overview of his practice and challenge the place now in art of legacy artforms, but primarily painting. Including his own conceptual platforms such as nonceptualism, and no-production, this talk promises nothing but – as? – raised eyebrows, blood pressure, and a winning way with one-liners.

This elysium gallery & Beep Painting Biennial led event was made possible through funding from the @celfcymruarts & @nationallotterygoodcauses helping support artists and grass roots arts organisations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
