Verloren ruimte, 1988
Guy Mees uses various types of paper, newsprint, textiles, and even canvas and aluminium foil from time to time. Sometimes it is only the shadows cast that suggest that the bands of colour have been neither painted nor glued. Paper surfaces differing in width and shape create an illusion of depth that arises from the effect of the colours banded opposite one another. From 1983 onwards, the partially open compositions consisting of various clippings are gradually simplified into uni-coloured clippings.
