‘Better Living Through Chemistry’

New York City

Better Living Through Chemistry is Kelsey Brookes’ first solo show in New York and consists of entirely new work.

From his background in molecular biology, Brookes has taken his knowledge of scientific images and expanded them into extremely intricate paintings that explore the mutability of human consciousness. His painstaking process involves the painting of hundreds of concentric shapes that are both psychedelic and grounded in empiricism.

Explaining his starting point, Brookes says; “Art and science are often, and in my view incorrectly, seen as two opposing poles of a creative continuum. This is a misunderstanding of both. My recent work is a combination of my scientific background and current artistic interest- I have taken my understanding of molecular biology and married it with painting.”
