Acclaimed artist, Andrew Squire has created a dynamic collection of paintings which will form the Hinterland exhibition, set to open at the Thompson’s Gallery, Marylebone on 6th April.
Inspired by his travels in two apparently disparate countries, Scotland & Tanzania, the common starting point in the exhibition is a reflection on biodiversity and the precarious balance in which we all must live if we are to maintain a sustainable existence. As long-standing supporters of international conservation charity, the World Land Trust, whose loyal patron is Sir David Attenborough, Andrew and the Thompson’s Gallery have generously decided to donate 10% of sales from the exhibition to the charity to address his concerns on biodiversity loss.
The World Land Trust work to protect endangered habitats all over the world, from the Elephant corridors of India, to the rainforests of Borneo. Having collaborated with World Land Trust in a previous exhibition, Andrew is aware of the thought-provoking power of art and World Land Trust are delighted that such a talented artist has chosen to donate funds and also raise awareness, to the work they do in such a captivating way.
Hinterland will be on display in the Thompson’s Gallery, Marylebone from the 6th-24th April, 2011, with 10% of sales going towards World Land Trust.
