Words Found On The Back of a Painting by a Non-Binary, Trans Artist Artist Statement: These words are written on the back of a painting that I purchased from a young artist, Spencer Hatch. They created Their piece using acrylic paint and crayons. The paining is as gentle and quiet as Spencer if Theirself. I think that we have all known that feeling of not fitting in ... on a superficial level. Certainly there are time when I feel like I don't fit in. But I'm not Trans, and I don't identify as non-binary, in a binary world. I can't even imagine what this 'wish' must be like for this young artist. When I look at these words pencilled on the back of Their painting as a sort of secret message ... I weep.
... I'm just a guy who likes to make quilts ... and tell stories. Every day is an adventure as I try new things. Like the rest of life it seems, what can be done in quilt making is limited only by my imagination. What an incredibly exciting journey!
