If in Insideout is canvass transparency what allows us to see the coloured stretcher, in Lighting series is reflection what allows us to it. The artist faces a set of cut cardboard (in geometric shapes) to a blank paper. The cardboards are painted on the side that remains hidden to the viewer. However, the hidden colours are reflected on the paper in front of them, which becomes and ethereal surface that radiates coloured lights. Both Insideout and Lighting series subvert one of the most assumed conventions of the history of painting -to paint on the canvas or the paper-. Through this small gesture, Pfaffs painting seems to become more sculptural.
