A Piney New World

John Jacobsmeyer has been one of those artists that just slips through the radar cracks (if I may use a mixed metaphor) and his recent wood-themed series is worth a look for its brilliant treatment of industrial wood. Notice how JJ puts this timber into different roles, sometimes the backdrop, sometimes the focus, always the theme.

His photo series, A Piney New World is a nice jump from this:

...which was his previous best, IMHO. And still, behold that wood paneling. (The top painting is called Painter's Lounge. The bottom one is Bele and Lochi Tie the Knot.) Get it? Knot?

The second painting is of two aliens in a Star Trek episode (original series).

If you go to his website you can find a painting he did based on Mr Spock. You look under paintings,then lonely supeheroes.

RE: Belle and Lochi Tie the knot.

Curious about the diablo hand sign they're doing. They don't seem like heavy metal fans nor fans of the longhorns. Does anyone have any insight into the painting and/or the artist?
