ART: John Casey

Recently ran across this artist, John Casey, at a two-man show in Oakland at Boontling Gallery. He does some really intense sculpture and some pen-and-ink drawings. A little dark for most people's tastes, but undeniably effective as an emotion-inducing tool. The show wassbsolutely great; one piece invloved 50 small heads, seen here:

I even bought one for myself (great deal at $45 per piece), I'll post pictures of it once I get around to picking it up from the gallery. Check out his website, it's well designed and contains many pictures of his work.
