Je­remy Rot­sz­tain is a dig­i­tal artist who looks at the his­tory and prac­tice of paint­ing through a dig­i­tal lens.
Employing “gestures” that are common in this digital era — swiping a finger across an iPhone’s screen or remixing clips from Hollywood films — he creates animated compositions with a painterly aesthetic. Audiences are invited to explore and disappear into screen based-canvases, which are virtual windows onto endless 3D worlds.

Jeremy Rotsztain (b. 1977 Toronto, Canada) is a digital artist who looks at the history and practice of painting through a digital lens. Employing “gestures” that are common in this digital era — swiping a finger across an iPhone’s screen or remixing clips from Hollywood films — he creates animated compositions with a painterly aesthetic. Audiences are invited to explore and disappear into screen based-canvases, which are virtual windows onto endless 3D worlds. Integral to his practice, Jeremy writes software to generate and manipulate digital materials in hybrid ways, incorporating techniques from painting, animation, video game design and filmmaking. Jeremy received his Master’s degree from the Interactive Telecommunication Program at NYU and lives in Portland, Oregon.

His work has been exhibited and screened at the Cooper Hewitt and the New York Hall of Science in NYC, Urban Screens in Melbourne, Subtle Technologies and InterAccess in Toronto, Electric Fields in Ottawa, SAT in Montreal, New Forms Festival in Vancouver, and online.
