Ulrich Lamsfuß: spielen & wachsen

Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin 2009
With a text by René Pollesch

The Berlin-based artist Ulrich Lamsfuß reproduces in his paintings images found in a wide variety of media such as National Geographic, travel and fashion magazines, cinema or art related publications.

Working his way across a feint pencil grid with a meticulous precision, his paintings contrast the sources on which they are based, momentary snapshots captured in a fraction of a second. The glossy photographic surface is replaced by a sensuous painted structure that stresses the contrasts, thus creating a theatrical atmosphere.
Ulrich Lamsfuß’ new work continues to explore and question the principles of reproduction and authorship: ‘I am once again the author, but in a more complex, more broken-up, more multi-dimensional way’.
