Paul Feiler (1918-2013)

The paintings of Paul Feiler were inspired by the English landscape, particularly the cliffs and inlets of the coast of south-west Cornwall.

Feiler’s vision was based on the understanding that ‘you stand vertically and you look horizontally’; through this he aimed to fulfill Cézanne’s requirement that ‘a picture should give us… an abyss in which the eye is lost.’

He moved from painterly abstraction to an exploration of the elusive nature of space through the effects of narrow bands of colour, silver and gold in a pattern of square and circle, which he varied and developed over more than forty years.

Feiler is an artist who lets us really stand in front of a painting and give ourselves over to it and let ourselves concentrate, remind ourselves what it is to think about colour, form and that particular moment, to think about the relationship of painting to our minds and our world.
