I am currently working on a short film piece about local San Diego artist, Kelsey Brookes. Kelsey's scientific background is where he draws a great deal of his artwork's inspiration from. Later this month his work will be featured at Eric Firestone Gallery in East Hampton, NY. The show entitled, Plants of the Gods, consists of paintings based on hallucinogenic compounds used in indigenous ceremonies throughout the world. For more of Kelsey's work visit: www.kelseybrookes.com.
Stay tuned for an interview and glimpse into Kelsey's creative process in the coming weeks.
