The Redfern Gallery is hosting a retrospective of works by Paul Feiler (1918-2013), in honour of the artist’s centenary year.
Paul Feiler is one of the group of internationally renowned artists who lived and worked near St Ives during the 1950s and 60s, which included Peter Lanyon, William Scott and Roger Hilton. During his lifetime, Feiler was given two major retrospectives at Tate St Ives and his work is displayed in its current exhibition, Modern Art and St Ives.
Elusive Space: A Centenary Retrospective will feature key works spanning varying stages of Feiler’s career. The artist’s paintings were often inspired by the cliffs and inlets of the coast of south-west Cornwall. A number of the earlier pieces seek to evoke the sensation of the landscape – of rain sweeping in from the west, the sea pounding the cliffs, the grey granite of harbour walls and houses, and the rapidly changing light.
Pivotal works include: Grey Receding (1964-65), Evening Harbour, Low Tide (1953) and Scathe, Brown (1963).
