Keith's works are created with graphite, oil, acrylic and pastel and explore themes of family values, trust, love and friendship. Keith has added subtle earth tones to his usual monochromatic palette, adding: “They are a touch surreal in a dark and beautiful way.”
Speaking on this piece, he says: "This painting is my interpretation of an original and darker story of Little Red Riding Hood, in which I highlight the dangers of social media and online dating. A woman’s hair is one of the many powerful tools she has for attracting the opposite gender. When she cuts it or covers it up, this can send a message that she is not available.
"This is why the girl has short hair and symbolism on her arm saying ‘unavailable’. She has a tattoo over her eye saying ‘damaged’, with a symbolic letter ‘R’ on her right upper arm, and a ring saying ‘f*** Grandma’. She is gently holding the wolf as she would a pet, but all is not as it seems."
