For Pet Sounds, Ulrich Lamsfuss has created a new series of paintings and drawings with the eye of an editor untroubled by content. His works are about the aesthetics of the banal. A monochrome still-life of a BMW engine, a close up of a bunch of tomatoes on the vine rendered in saturated colors, and a nude woman holding a bottle of perfume culled from an advertising campaign are just a few examples of his eclectic world. What makes this apparently disjointed subject matter even more puzzling is the replication of each of the paintings presented at Lombard-Freid Projects and their simultaneous display at a West Coast gallery. Lamsfuss paints the same motif twice in a conscious process of eliminating the idea of a subject matter. His work is as much about the act of painting as it is about the process of stoic routine.
