Maggi Hambling was the first Artist in Residence at the National Gallery, London, 1980, and won the Jerwood Painting Prize (with Patrick Caulfield) in 1995.
Hambling's celebrated and continuing series of North Sea paintings were last exhibited at the Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge in 2010. Her work is held in many public collections including, in the UK, the British Museum, Tate Collection, National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Scottish Gallery of Modern Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Public sculpture includes A Conversation with Oscar Wilde (1998) opposite Charing Cross Station, London, Scallop (2003), on Aldeburgh beach, Suffolk, for the composer Benjamin Britten (awarded the first Marsh Award for Excellence in Public Sculpture in 2005), The Brixton Heron (2010) and The Resurrection Spirit, St Dunstan's Church, Mayfield, East Sussex (2013).
This year the artist has a solo exhibition at The Hermitage, St Petersburg and exhibited an installation at SNAP, during this year’s Aldeburgh Festival.
Hambling lives and works in Suffolk and London.
Maggi donated a deckchair design for Deckchair Dreams 2013. She believes the Royal Parks are precious oases which must at all costs remain. About her design, she told us:
Since my first sighting, aged 4, of a Heron, this bird has appeared often in my work. The Heron inhabits almost every park in London and my deckchair will, I hope, encourage people to look for and watch these exotic and magical creatures"
