Oil on canvas
His early works were figurative in style and he held successful exhibitions for these works. However, in the 1950's when the influence of action painting was spreading to England, and after a chance encounter with Jackson Pollock, Fidler's style moved dramatically towards the abstraction.
Fidler took part in his first major exhibition in Moscow, 1957, alongside other British artists, and the following year was included in the Paris exhibition, 'Towards the Future'. In 1959 Fidler had his first solo show at the Drian Gallery in London and subsequently began exhibiting there regularly. During the 1960's he also exhibited with the Free Painters Group and at the Ben Uri Gallery.
Fidler continued to paint for the rest of his life, however by the early 1960s he moved away from London and by the 1980s had completely abandoned abstraction. He began to record the landscape around his home, and on his travels in watercolour, pastel and graphite. His figurative work nevertheless retains the energy and bold visual appeal of the abstraction of his earlier years.
