Surreal Landscapes on Display on Marietta Square

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
