Born in 1971, Ulrich Lamsfuss lives and works in Berlin. An appropriation artist who deliberately blurs the line between painting and photography, his work continues to call into question the very idea of originality. He works using photographs from a wide range of sources, including press, internet, sales catalogues, technical publications and art history. He painstakingly reproduces the photographs in oils to create a fresh interpretation of the chosen images.
In his relation to animals, man seeks to define his singularity, the nature of what constitutes the essence of his identity. These multiple contacts, sometimes marked by promiscuity, are both inevitable and necessary. He cannot ignore or do without this vital relationship. From the insect to the mammal, encompassing fish and birds, from tiny to gigantic, from familiar to exotic, the animal challenges humanity on the place it presumes to be its own in the world.
