Kelsey Brookes opening night at New Image…

Upon entering New Image, patrons were greeted by two circular works from Kelsey Brookes that were motorized and spinning about… creating an effect that was surreal. Definitely was hard to look at these for very long. After being struck by those wonders, patrons were greated by Kelsey’s impressive installation, complete with life-size skeletal sculpture…

Above is the view from the main gallery down the long hallway that leads to New Image’s project room and back area/office… at the end of the long hallway was Brookes’ yeti sculpture that was included in his recent show up in SF at White Walls…

Above is the entry way to New Image’s project room, which on this night was also taken up by Kelsey. He covered the entire room (floor, ceiling and walls) with oriental rugs and built out the opening with some nice touches too…

Below is the view from their long hallway looking out into the main gallery (notice the nice touches at the top of the hallway from Kelsey)…

As we left Aritchoke Heart Souffle’ started up their set… below, the foundation / base of his massive sculpture install… a must see show to say the least. Kelsey has raised his own bar and then some with this show. Don’t sleep.
