Ketch Wehr Split + Growing

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.

Split + Growing runs from Sunday, April 20, through Sunday, May 25
