Oakland artist John Casey and The Rare Bird presents “Hands & Pants 2″. “Hands & Pants 2″ is a broad collaborative venture, employing 50 of John’s artist peers. John drew either hands or pants (blue-jean-clad waist-down shod figures) or both, 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. The original Hands & Pants first appeared at Swarm Gallery in Oakland in 2011.
