Publication Date 2017
Description

'Marlborough Fine Art is pleased to announce Edge, an exhibition of new paintings and sculpture by Maggi Hambling, widely regarded as one of Britain’s most significant and controversial artists. The exhibition follows Maggi Hambling – Touch: works on paper, a retrospective at the British Museum. Hambling has exhibited with Marlborough for 20 years and this is her eighth solo exhibition with the gallery.

Hambling’s work offers a counterweight to the careful irony and self-conscious allusion of much contemporary art, demanding a direct and unmediated encounter with the viewer. These new works succeed in in convincing us that we are present at, and indeed become part of, their making. We are “on the edge”, confronted by the fragility of existence, both ours and that of the planet.'
