Article from insidernola.org:  
Art review by Eric Bookhardt:

At an age when many people slow their pace. Jim Sohr is in high gear producing magnificent pieces of art in his Chalmette residence. The word is don't call before 4 pm as the artist is a night owl and spends most nights working on massive sculpture which may need a larger door added to his house in order for the work to exit the house.
One of the more enduring art world myths is that right-wing presidents provoke a backlash of creative bohemianism. Dubious at best, it is doubly dicey if the president is stranger than Salvador Dali and more nihilistic than the Dadaists. But American gothic weirdness has long lurked in small towns like Waukesha, Wisconsin, from which a young misfit named Jim Sohr fled to New Orleans in the 1960s. Legal indiscretions landed him in the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola, where he took up art and became the visionary he is today. Some of his older works included in the show reveal how only a modern Hieronymus Bosch from Green Bay Packers cheesehead country could have anticipated the madness we now face. Reflecting an aesthetic shaped more by Wurlitzer jukeboxes than Picasso, Plugs (pictured) previews a retro-futurist America where electronic aliens inhabit massive warehouses in a painting that predated Amazon.com and internet conspiracies about UFOs and the New World Order. In Birds and Ladies, lonely blonds with haunted eyes populate a scene that presaged white middle American alienation, and in 3 Greens, pointy-eared space aliens have taken over grandma's bedroom. Once thought impossibly otherworldly, Sohr's visionary views have, over time, become increasingly, if disturbingly, familiar. ***
