John Casey’s ‘Hands and Pants 6’
This exhibition at Faultline Artspace is the 6th of this ever-growing body of work over the last few years.
“Hands & Pants” is a broad collaborative venture, employing 100+ of John Casey’s artist peers. John drew hands and/or pants in his simple pen-and-ink style on 8”x10” Bristol paper. An invited artist was given the hands and/or pants and asked to complete the figure in any way the artist saw fit. John’s intent was to create a collective storyboard using the “Hands & Pants” motif as a common recognizable character engaged in a variety of manifestations. However, the returned collaborations have gone far beyond John’s expectations in sheer artistic variety, producing an extended family of unique, individual beings, a tribe of sorts, like Bay Area artists, all sharing a creative passion, yet each unique in that endeavor.
