In recent years, former biologist Kelsey Brookes has shifted his focus to explosive, kaleidoscopic paintings that fuse his fascinations with microbiomes, Buddhist philosophy, exotic plant life, and human desire. His meticulous compositions include bright colors and repetitive patterns resembling abstract mandalas, psychedelic tessellations, and energetic fields. In a straightforward, humorous style, Brookes describes his work as “an unrefined and, some would say, unskilled mix of sex, comedy and animals, which is derived from a true passion for all three, except not necessarily all at the same time.”
