The “Verloren Ruimte (Lost space)” series that Mees pursued from mid 80’s through the early 90’s take the form of thin scraps of coloured paper cut in different shapes and pinned directly to the wall. A selection of six works dating from 1985 to 1992 are exhibited at ProjecteSD. Mees creates these cut-outs using a variety of materials: matt, shiny or semi-matt paper, aluminium foil, painter’s canvas, sometimes even newspaper. Cut hastily and roughly in differently shaped shreds, with round or angular edges, the different colours and the combination of them, together with the effects of light reflection or absorption on the surface of the waving cut-outs results in an intense visual experience. The wall reliefs integrate line, shape and colour and merge with the real space around. Space becomes part of the composition as the negative shape, the projection wall against which the composition of colours stands out.
