Maggi Hambling presents her first exhibition at Glyndebourne at the 2022 Glyndebourne Festival and her piece Night of the Lotus Eaters features on the cover of the Festival 2022 Programme Book.
Glyndebourne features a new series of diptychs and ink drawings by Maggi Hambling which resonate with this year’s Glyndebourne Festival productions, along with a large-scale painting that hangs prominently in the Glyndebourne foyer.
The exhibition includes six prints of ink drawings, each one selected by Hambling to represent one of this year’s productions, and a series titled Stage Diptychs I-XII that portray figures in a variety of poses on stage. Using a bold palette of Indian yellows, black, oxblood and white, these paired paintings reflect Hambling’s longstanding interest in performers and the art of performance. As with much of the artist’s output, the works for Glyndebourne deal with themes of desire, ecstasy, life, loss and death.
