Interview with Maggi Hambling
28/12/14 Maggi Hambling: interview
Maggi Hambling: Walls of Water
National Gallery, London
26 November 2014 – 15 February 2015
Maggi Hambling: Walls of Water: The
Marlborough Fine Art
3 December 2014 – 10 January 2015
In 1980, Maggi Hambling was the
first artist-in-residence at the National Gallery. A controversial character,
whose public sculptures have divided opinion and who is known for her outspoken
opinions, she is also a passionate painter. Despite being almost 70, she considers
herself still to be learning about the joys of oil paint and feels lucky not to
be in a profession from which she is compelled to retire. With two concurrent
shows, Walls of Water – the paintings and the monotypes – at the National
Gallery and Marlborough Fine Art respectively, and a further exhibition and
book due in March 2015, Hambling invited Studio International to her south London
studio to talk about the sea, life, death and love.
