For his contribution to Feral Note’s KLANGBOX IV Thomas Pfaffinger created a series of nine sculptural canvas works. Mirrored windows act as the only insight into closed rooms, although most of the time, the spectator is reflected and therefore seeing himself. The work refers to self-cognition and different identities in different stages of life.
As always, Pfaffinger started his working process with questioning materials, their consistence and structure. Finding color in an indirect way to dismiss the obvious and making this color become more sculptural, so that structures develop their own identity. The artist started using holographic window foil, also found in urban territory - buildings with mirrored windows to protect the look inside made him scrutinize architecture psychology. All sculptural paintings contain materials which are used in the context of building houses or arranging rooms: window foils, spray, curtains, facade spray and light elements. The symbol of houses as a comparison to the psychology of the body was the central starting point of the work SCHEINTRANSPARENZ.
