Kelsey Brookes’ book Psychedelic Space embodies the current work of this fascinating artist perfectly.  Originally trained as a biochemist, Brookes initially favored figurative forms when he first veered into his art career. Over time, his paintings became ever more vibrant and abstract. Psychedelic Space is concerned exclusively with documenting Kelsey’s more recent paintings, explosive renderings that are equally plausible as photos of the cosmos or subatomic particles. In this case, however, they’ve sprung directly from the mind of this evocative artist. As Brookes’ first monograph, Psychedelic Space features a broad variety of printing techniques and special additions paying homage to Brookes’ non-traditional artistic journey. Gatefold spreads, a sticker sheet, and a clear molecular overlay on his stunning “LSD” piece, along with a booklet bound within and glow-in-the-dark cover text, bring the mind-changing experience of Brookes’ art to life. Commentary includes essays by Hamilton Morris, Leoni Bradbury, Richard M. Doyle, and a visual essay by Ryan McGinness, as well as a dialogue with Kelsey Brookes by Anthony Kiedis.

Brookes is based in San Diego, California and has most recently exhibited with Library Street Collective in Detroit and Quint Contemporary in La Jolla.
