Cut Conversations

In the Studio, Maggi Hambling

Sunday 25th April 2021 - 3:00 pm

The third in the series Cut Conversations sees Maggi Hambling in conversation with Ros Green.

No stranger to controversy, leading British artist Maggi Hambling’s most recent public artwork A Sculpture for Mary Wollstonecraft  was unveiled on Newington Green in London in November 2020. 

The artist discusses her life and work with freelance writer Ros Green during lockdown in her Suffolk studio.

Maggi Hambling was born in Suffolk and is one of Britain’s most celebrated artists. Her first teachers were Arthur Lett Haines and Sir Cedric Morris at the Artists’ House, Benton End, in Hadleigh, Suffolk, and she later studied at Ipswich School of Art, Camberwell School of Art and the Slade School of Fine Art.

She has exhibited widely throughout the UK, as well as in the US and Ireland, and has won numerous awards including her appointment as the first Artist in Residence at the National Gallery, London, in 1980, the Jerwood Painting Prize in 1995, and the Marsh Award for Excellence in Public Sculpture for the Aldeburgh Scallop in 2005. She was created OBE in 1995 and CBE in 2010.

Her blistering account of the making of the mostly much-loved Aldeburgh Scallop is published by Full Circle Editions in a book available at The Halesworth Bookshop.
