Maggi Hambling

Painter and sculptor Maggi Hambling discusses her work with the RA’s Artistic Director, Tim Marlow.

One of Britain’s foremost contemporary artists, Hambling is perhaps best known for her compelling portraits, paintings of the sea and her celebrated and controversial public sculpture, including A Conversation with Oscar Wilde (1998) and Scallop (2003). Her work is represented in major British Collections including the British Museum, the National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, V&A and Tate.

Hambling has never been afraid of addressing big themes and delivers the simultaneous presence of life and death in her work. Following her recent retrospective at the British Museum, her exhibition, Edge, at Marlborough Fine Art (1 March–13 April), presents a new series where polar icecaps melt, Aleppo and its inhabitants fall, ghosts hover and Hamlet questions.
