- This page/site is a living document and due to the ongoing social activism of its author, it will always be lagging behind as far as being up-to-date (Keith was diagnosed with Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy a few years ago. So this condition has interfered with the goals set for himself, as far as his social activism and acts of creativity).
As this artist who wants to initiate social change, Keith uses the power of words and/or images to express his opinions and insights to the world. Similar to the manner of a Heyoka, he embeds these creations with empathy, satire, jest or the contrary perspective to arouse consciously a reflective and mirroring experience in others. This process then transforms Keith’s art into the proactive energy of Non-Violent Direct Action. An enlightening form of spiritual interaction that encourages the use of OPEN DIALOGUE between fellow humans. A Non-Violent Direct way of communicating that effectuates social change in the collective conscious and unconscious of humanity. A KIND of change that hopefully leads to the healing and intelligent progression of the HUMAN-KIND.
To further clarify, Keith’s style of artistic expression emerges a spiritually philosophical blend of poetry and prose often visually flavored with his photographic imagery. This artistic brew of ingredients is embedded with a PRO-HUMAN message that is further communicated through performance art – Non-Violent Direct Action. In the past, while participating in artistic, charitable, and athletic events, Keith created a body metaphor (wearing dark clothes with a hood). He used Performance Art, acts of creativity to illustrate, and encourage the transitional, transformational, patient, tolerant, peaceful, healing, and intelligently progressive process found when communicating through OPEN DIALOGUE. This style of artistic metaphor tries to reveal how an OPEN process of DIALOGUE could help to bring forth out of the darkness into the light, any suppressed predispositions, inhibitions, and stereotypes. Where these socially embedded and inhibitive behaviors that work against finding any cures for societal ills, have a better chance to be confronted – aired out and finally be resolved by a communicative process like OPEN DIALOGUE.
Keith’s Non-Violent Direct Actions are guided and tempered by the spirit of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. This LOVE emanates from the energy of Keith’s emotive heart and spiritually influences the thought process of his mind. The embodiment of Love overflowing with acceptance, patience and tolerance that nurtures the intelligent progression of others and oneself. The PUREST kind of Love that nourishes THE PROCESS OF HEALING and the sustained HOPE for PEACE. An innate Eternal Love for the Human Species. A LOVE void of predisposition, inhibition and stereotype that emerges a spiritually positive pro-human perspective as to the future SURVIVAL of HUMAN-KIND.
It is these enlightened aspects of LOVE that inspire Keith as a SPIRITUAL WARRIOR, HEALER and SOCIAL ACTIVIST to do his part to creatively initiate SOCIAL CHANGE. The type of Social Change that envisions the benefit of HUMAN SPIRITUAL POWER as a collective of INDIVIDUALS – purposefully participating in the co-evolutionary process of reflective consciousness. An intelligently progressive, system of thought working as one to improve the Overall Well-Being of ALL THE HUMAN-KIND. A transitionally accumulative, collective realization of SPRITUAL WARRIOR POWER held within a way of perspective (enlightenment), that of being just One of a Kind in Nature, the HUMAN-KIND. ONE HUMAN-KIND of INDIVIDUALS regardless, the group LABELS of race, skin color, sex, gender, nationality, ethnicity, culture, belief, or economic status. All this ONE Kind united in ONE purpose. A Warrior (activist) mindset forging Spiritually Enlightened Social Change (proactive energy + the collective spiritual power of We the People as ONE KIND). A spiritual mindset embedded with the foresight and wisdom of the necessity for diversely preserving ALL We the People as ONE KIND into the future.
As a visionary and futurist, Keith foresees the transitioning and transforming spiritual power of We the People (Spiritual Warriors) as this collective whole of INDIVIDUALS to forge a Social Change that brings Healing and Peace to our KIND. This proactive energy will not only be beneficial for the HUMAN-KIND. The benefits of Social Change will systemically be transitioning and transforming for all of Nature’s living and non-living aspects that comprise its totality. Keith envisions this will occur collectively from the HUMAN-KIND transitioning spiritually beyond just a humanitarian focus and concern for its KIND. This spiritual process will transform our KIND multi-dimensionally in thought to encompass a holistically Nature-itarian focus and concern for ALL of Nature’s KINDs.
