Dream Crest of a Wave, Maggi Hambling

Crest of a Wave, Maggi Hambling
2009

Suffolk born and bred, Maggi Hambling has long been inspired by the sea. Her works include the controversial sculpture, ‘Scallop’, which was installed on Aldeburgh beach in 2003, in tribute to Benjamin Britten, to the many sketches and oil paintings, from small and intimate to large soaring seascapes. ‘Crest of a Wave’, 2009 is from Hambling’s North Sea paintings series, which began in 2002 during a storm. Hambling looked up and out of the window and the water was ‘crashing round the meadows’, promoting a fascination with the subject. Hambling now draws the sea every morning, very early when it’s still dark and difficult to distinguish shapes. The works demonstrate Hambling’s commitment to the rhythm of the painting and, in 2009, ‘Crest of a Wave’ was auctioned in aid of the Suffolk Punch Trust.
