Paul Feiler (1918 - 2013) was one of the leading figures of the Modern Art movement emanating from St Ives, Cornwall. Profoundly influenced by the landscape, his refined colour modulations are principally concerned with our perception of space. His paintings - always on a square canvas - appear like portals, and embody the idea of a sacred and devotional space reserved for contemplation.
Feiler’s work is held in numerous British collections, including the Tate, the Victoria & Albert Museum, Kettle’s Yard and the Arts Council. International collections featuring his work include the Gallery of Modern Art in Washington, DC; the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris; and the Toronto Art Gallery in Canada.
