Ahmad Rafi refers to the stagings as performative acts. A painter hides behind his canvas. Artist and canvas are inseparably connected. The artist himself is not visible, revealing himself only through his painted canvas. The backgrounds in his Canvas Paintings are a monochrome mauvey-blue-gray. Together with the play of shadows this monochrome field is the foil in front of which the canvas develops a life of its own.
