Kelsey Brookes has reinvented psychedelic art for the 21st Century for his UK debut exhibition.
His latest body of work consists of large scale canvases, with paintings of animals, bold geometric shapes and kaleidoscopic abstraction, which is unusually inspired by migranes. The powerful affliction is often associated with not only visual hallucinations but all other synaesthetic experiences (the interpretation of one sense as another, for instance hearing colour). The geometric lines and colours come directly from the hallucinogenic experiences just before the headache.
The work is impulsive, extravagant and spontaneous, an echo of the spirit.
