Julian Friers

A Shimmering Silence

Wildlife Paintings from the Persian Gulf



A Shimmering Silence showcases Julian Friers' series of romantic paintings of the diverse wildlife populating the Gulf region. They document this celebrated wildlife artist’s expeditions to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates over the last twenty years.

Not only are these works a representation of the region’s surprisingly varied ecosystems threatened by climate change and human complacency, but they are primarily an artistic celebration of the importance of the natural world and its conservation.

Exhibition opens on Thursday 6 August, 6-8pm, and runs until 13 September 2015
