Internationally renowned Maggi Hambling has a long standing relationship with Snape Maltings, having exhibited her amazing works with us over many years. Her latest exhibition 'War Requiem' could not be more closely connected to the Maltings, having been inspired by Benjamin Britten himself. 'War Requiem & Aftermath' is a publication dedicated to her major installation first exhibited in 2013 and including an extensive body of paintings of battlefields and war victims. Presented last summer at ‘SNAP: Art at the Aldeburgh Festival’ to coincide with the centenary of Benjamin Britten, Hambling’s War Requiem stands as a bold testament to the anguish and absurdity of war. Hambling’s paintings possess a candour and emotiveness that is at odds with much contemporary art, and these qualities re-emerge in a recent cycle of sculptures titled Aftermath. The book features essays by James Cahill on War Requiem and Aftermath and their place within Hambling’s wider oeuvre, drawing upon extensive interviews with the artist.
