BGSQD Show On Its Way

Split + Growing is a new, highly personal exhibit of work from transfeminist 
painter and illustrator Ketch Wehr.  Primarily illustrative gouache paintings, 
Wehr's show explores his personal understanding of his gender and queerness 
from an early age through the lens of synesthesia.  
Synesthesia is a condition which, in his case, lends colors and flavors 
to all letters and words.  

Split + Growing is the visual display of an evolving queer selfhood 
through the colors Wehr knew to be part of his identity
 before he had the words to describe it.
