Marlborough Graphics is delighted to present an online
exhibition bringing together a selection of beautiful works on paper by
celebrated British artist Maggi Hambling.
Painted with watercolour and acrylic, they feature various fluctuations and crashes of ocean waves, a recurring motif in the artist’s paintings. These artworks all have a wonderful sense of immediacy, like studies or drawings, which is emphasised through their intimate scale.
The North Sea, off the Suffolk coast in the UK, has been synonymous with Hambling’s art since 2002, a year before her celebrated sculpture Scallop was unveiled on Aldeburgh beach. On the topic of the sea, the artist has said:
“This sea, the widest of mouths, roaring or laughing, is always
seductive. Life and death mysteriously co-exist in the timeless rhythm of the
waves.” Maggi Hambling, 2010
This online exhibition runs parallel to Hambling’s exhibition of new paintings at Marlborough London and coincides with the new BBC film about Maggi Hambling, currently available to view on iPlayer. Works are offered framed and inclusive of 20% VAT. Local and international shipping can be arranged at extra cost.
