Ulrich Lamsfuss maintains a database of images culled from popular culture. This visual dossier is curated based on the collector’s personal connection to the content. The oil paintings are worked and reworked in an effort to distance the product from the source.

Lamsfuss sifts through the world of advertising and entertainment with a hopeful eye. It is his search for reality, his quest for a credible identity in a virtual space that invigorates the content. Reclaiming the visual cortex from image overload is an important contemporary movement and this artist is gaining some ground for the cause.
