2 Rules Fine Art gallery presents “A Sense of Place,” an exhibition of oil paintings by Atlanta artist Paul LaJeunesse. The show will run Jan. 31 through March 1, with a reception on Friday, Feb. 7th, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the gallery. 

LaJeunesse is a realist landscape painter whose work deals with symbiotic relationships of light, space and structure.

Many of the landscapes in the exhibition were completed by LaJeunesse while in Iceland on a Fulbright grant. Those paintings, mostly done in stark black and white, depict the landscapes of Iceland. Additional works in the exhibition are colorful landscapes rendered with a surreal quality, many with a collage approach that pulls various spaces together into a singular new space.

“I am fascinated with our perception of time and space, and how we assimilate it with an internal value system, to create meaning for our lives,” LaJeunesse said in a press release.

“The paintings do not attempt to depict a scene, but rather to harken to a moment of understanding of an experience that transcends the sense of self and aligns our being with the universe.” 

LaJeunesse teaches drawing and painting at Georgia State University. He received a B.F.A. in drawing from Missouri State University and an M.F.A. in painting from Bowling Green State University in Ohio.

The reception on Feb. 7 is free and open to the public.

The gallery is located at 85 Church St., Marietta GA 30060.
