A couple weeks ago, the Quint Contemporary Art in San Diego hosted all new works from local artist Kelsey Brookes. Entitled Serotonin; Happiness and Spiritual States, the show featured his representations of various neurotransmitter molecules colored with the various intereactions they have on our mental status.

This Saturday night, November 10th, Kelsey Brookes will be putting on display some paintings he has been working on for a while now that are based loosely on the structures of neurotransmitters and their influence on our mental state. As a former microbiologist, it is only natural for science and art to converge in Brookes’ new body of work entitled Serotonin; Happiness and Spiritual States. Publisher Mark Murphy stopped and snapped some shots (seen in this article as well as over here & here), but head […]

It looks like Kelsey Brookes has been working on a new body of work for Quint Contemporary Art in La Jolla, set to open in November. The upcoming series of paintings, drawing from the San Diego-based artist’s science background, will be inspired by structural diagrams of different neurotransmitters as well as the drugs that mimic them, both designer (i.e. xanex, prozac) and recreational (i.e. mescaline, LSD). And in other news, Brookes has been tapped to create covers for the Red Hot Chili Peppers as they get set to release 18 […]
