About this item

Painter and sculptor Maggi Hambling has made a name for herself as one of the most interesting and creative artists in Britain today, and this book offers the closest look we’ve ever had at her own thoughts about her work and career. In a series of conversations with art critic Andrew Lambirth, Hambling surveys her innovative oeuvre, along the way addressing the controversies her work has generated, including battles over her sculptures of Oscar Wilde, Benjamin Britten, and, most recently, Michael Jackson (which was rejected by the Royal Academy).Hambling reveals herself here to be as thoughtful as she is creative, offering substantive reflections on what she is trying to achieve with her art, and how its public reception over the years has informed and challenged her process of creation. The book sets these frank conversations alongside reproductions of two hundred of Hambling’s paintings, drawings, and sculptures; the result is an unprecedented picture of her artistic output, powerful and even moving.
