 Queer Culture

 

Inspiration is often the precipice by which artists look at out at the world. Their very roots influence and experiences are the basis for what they produce and how they manipulate their own world views into whatever substrate they prefer. Keith is no exception.

First, for Keith, inspiration comes from the beauty of nature, especially vegetation, as a way of interpreting humanity's own existence in this world.  Second, Keith looks toward the queer artists of the 1970s/80s from the Pop Art sensibilities of Andy Warhol to the erotic composition of Peter Hujar and Robert Maplethorpe. Combined with those issues surrounding queer theory (power and dominance, intersexuality, etc.) Keith creates works that reflects on the queer nature of objects while at the same time looking at what makes us human.
