Jim Drain (born 1975) is an American mixed media artist. Drain often makes work collaboratively, first within the collective, Forcefield (1996–2002) and also with artists Elyse Allen, Ara Peterson and Ben Russell, respectively.
Life and work
His solo exhibition I Wish I Had a Break (2005) and I Would Gnaw On My Hand (2007) were presented at Greene Naftali Gallery in New York. His work is held in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
Drain's solo work has explored the bounds of sculpture via furniture, garment making, photography, collage and installation. Textiles have often provided conceptual and formal guidance in these explorations. Drain's work is typically bright and bold, often mixing knits and found materials in his sculpture; with Drain, fantasy finds form and form becomes the starting point for perceptual transformation.
