Maggi Hambling: The Wave
This online exhibition features a small selection of works by Maggi Hambling exhibited, with others, in the Mellon Gallery (Gallery 13) from 27 April to 8 August 2010.
The North Sea off the Suffolk coast has dominated Hambling’s art since 2002, a year before her celebrated sculpture Scallop was unveiled on Aldeburgh beach.
“As the waves of the North Sea voraciously consume our coast, these new paintings respond to the energy of their action as they break. 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
