What happens when you paint drugs. Not on drugs, but the actual compositions of chemicals that open your mind. Or, how do you paint meditation? These have long been the concepts of Southern California-based painter, Kelsey Brookes, who has explored “meditative abstraction” in his works for years. Or as we have read, “Brookes masterfully melds a deep knowledge of cognitive science and art to create bright, intensely detailed paintings that abstract drug compounds, molecules, atoms and hallucinogenic states to heighten a viewer’s sensory perceptions and reactions.”
