Maggi Hambling 'North Sea Waves' - New oils and acrylics on papers Press Release

The exhibition is for charity and all profits will be shared between The Laura Case Trust, a medical charity, and Brockdish Church.

The celebrated East Anglian artist, Maggi Hambling, is one of the most distinctive artists of her generation - a restless artistic spirit who is equally at home painting George Melly for the National Portrait Gallery or making sculptures using cans of Special Brew.

In recent years her attention has turned to the coast near her house in Suffolk; her most famous and contentious work being the striking and monumental sculpture 'Scallop' on Aldeburgh beach.

The restless movement of the sea has become an obsession for Hambling and all paintings start with her daily ritual. 'Early each morning I go down to the sea and try to capture its mood by drawing, and each day is different. Back in the studio, these drawings become paintings. Whether they are tiny or cover the studio wall, I try to make the movement of the waves happen in the paint'.

The exhibition will comprise new oil paintings and her first small, acrylics on paper, where the waves become jewel-like in their intensity, and in their concentration of energy and colour.

Most works will be for sale with prices starting at 1,000 - very reasonable given Hambling's current prices.
