DRAWING HAND #2-RIGHT HAND
It's not the pencil that draws, it is your hand.

Whether drawing lines or inscribing words, the act of making marks lures ideas into the physical world. Hands perceive and reveal things that our eyes and conscious minds may never know. We discover things about ourselves and our thoughts by engaging the hand in a mark-making process.

San Francisco conceptual artist Agelio Batle’s Drawing Hand is both a poetic metaphor and a functioning drawing tool; all of its surface can write. Committed to making art from materials that are part of our daily experience, the artist originated this work by casting his own hand (Drawing Hand no.1) in pencil lead, graphite, each day for the calendar year 1999.

Drawing Hand suggests that our own hands have the innate capacity to be creative instruments. An object full of innocence, desire, pleasure and human potential, it invites you to access your imagination and discover infinite possibilities.

Quick facts:  Natural graphite & smudge resistant compounds fused in specialized forms under intense pressure. Handcrafted, each piece is meticulously fashioned using innovative methods artist Agelio Batle originated. Any part writes, while resisting staining hands. And yes, will break if dropped.

Each sculpture comes safely packaged in a special AS Batle Box with an enclosure telling about the artist and another telling about the significant item.
