Paul Feiler : 1918-2013
This handsome book accompanies a major retrospective at the Jerwood Gallery, Hastings and is the first monograph on the important British painter, Paul Feiler.
The paintings of Paul Feiler(1918-2013 were inspired by the English landscape, particularly the cliffs and inlets of the coast of south-west Cornwall. For his friend Peter Lanyon, Feiler's early works provided him with a sense of 'calm and I mean a sense of pause...To achieve that repose in the landscape I know one has to suffer the opposite.'
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. Based on full access to the artist's archive of letters, catalogues and photographs, Michael Raeburn describes how Feiler overcame many painful early experiences to achieve the meditative serenity of his deeply spiritual work.
