Maggi Hambling: Origins

Gainsborough's House, Sudbury
17 June - 29 October 2023
10am – 5pm

Origins spans six decades of Hambling’s work, bearing witness to the artist’s deep connection with Suffolk and inviting a meditation on the universal relationships between self and environment, people and place.

Contemporary artist Maggi Hambling returns to the town of her birth with an exhibition spanning six decades of her work.

Born in Sudbury in 1945, Hambling brings around 30 works from her 60-year career to the former home of fellow Sudbury born artist, Thomas Gainsborough, and the first place where she “registered real art”. The earliest piece on display, Rosie the Rhino, was created in 1963 when she was a student.

Through her selected portrayals of people and places, Hambling considers the universal relationships between self and environment, the evolution of love, and the inescapable proximity of life to death.
