San Diego-based artist Kelsey Brookes presents “Plants of the Gods”, an exhibition at Eric Firestone Gallery in East Hampton, New York from June 20 to July 7, 2015.
From the press release of the exhibition,
A microbiologist, surfer and self-taught painter, Brookes enjoys meditating on complexities: the nature of existence and perception, Hindu and Buddhist deities, science and philosophy, as well as fractals and math-based patterns. These passions translate into obsessively detailed abstractions related to chemical composition and brain activity. Brookes’ molecular paintings begin as two-dimensional maps (molecular line drawings) of the precise locations of individual atoms, which then expand and radiate out from these hyper detailed focal points to cover the canvas’s surface. The effect renders visible the normally unseen nano world of atoms and molecules, a world that mediates and regulates every aspect of life and mind.
