San Diego, California based Kelsey Brookes just opened his debut UK solo exhibition, Desires of the Soul, at the Lazarides space, The Outsiders, in London. The avid surfer with a history in microbiology introduces a body of work including paintings, sculpture, and installation work. Our London correspondent, Butterfly, was at the opening.

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.
