Challenging Perspectives

Chris Fiddes exhibition

Chris Fiddes Challenging Perspectives is an exhibition looking back at the life of notable and prolific local artist Christopher Fiddes who has been painting for over 60 years. Fiddes is a unique artist with a distinctive artistic approach. His paintings show his response to current affairs and the world around him, whilst his stylistic inspiration comes from more traditional artists and he paints using long established techniques.


Fiddes challenges perceptions and extends people’s awareness of human experiences. This exhibition brings together a key selection of Fiddes’ works presenting the themes that dominate his career. The five themes that make up this retrospective are conflict, social and political events, personal perspectives, countryside and tradition vs. modernity.
