Jim Drain’s SEEM / SEAMS opened at VSF in Los Angeles on Saturday May 2, 2015. After spending the past decade in Miami, Jim recently moved back to Providence, Rhode Island, where it all began. SEEM / SEAMS presents a series of collage-based paintings derived from the psychedelic and punk rock approach at the foundation of his practice. Jim attended RISD and was a founding member of the art collective Forcefield, a experimental noise band that combined sound, performance, and wearable works.
Silkscreen, magazine, acrylic, color pencil, paper, cotton, linen, burlap, and the Fort Thunder phone list are mixed together with a colorful consciousness that gives thanks to the process. I’d like to live within Jim Drain’s paintings and play within each psychedelic intricacy.
