CATHEDRAL is a new solo exhibition of paintings by North Devon-based artist Peter Stiles. On leaving The Slade, Peter Stiles began to paint the landscape of North Devon and has continued to do so. His work is constructed using the layers of memory that have accrued around the places that he has painted so often. He composes pictures in order to convey emotion and a sense of grandeur and space.
