How to Paint a Virus? Inside the New Works of Kelsey Brookes

Sep 29, 2018 - Nov 10, 2018Quint Gallery, La Jolla, California

“The brain and its product, the mind, are a fascinating subject; I question existence, both philosophically and scientifically, and because of my background, a good place to start my interrogation of life is through the material science of the brain.” Kelsey Brookes has been working in this realm for quite sometime, visualizing the way our brain works, often exploring the intricate details and painting what actual memories and modern biochemistry would look like as a painting. His newest show, FIBONACCI, WAVEFORMS AND CAPSID SYMMETRIES, will feature a free standing and wall sculpture dealing with viruses and the Fibonacci sequence. The show opens at Quint Gallery in La Jolla on September 29th. 

If you follow Brookes on his IG account, you may have seen some of these incredible works come to life, with the unique surface shapes that the artist has been exploring (as well as the textures and sculptural compositions). Below are two videos on some of the details of the new show, a bit of a fun look at what Brookes is exploring when is looking at Fibonacci
