"There is nothing inhibited about the emergence of the summer sun in Maggi Hambling's unfettered landscapes. Rather than rising hesitantly above the foliage on the edge of the Orwell Estuary, veiled by the mists which so often give the English countryside an early morning reticence, it bursts in the Suffolk sky like a bomb. The whole of nature is shaken by the sudden, eruptive advent of this vehement disc." Art critic Richard Cork, writing in the exhibition catalogue 'MAGGI HAMBLING: Paintings, drawings & Watercolours' accompanying the artist's solo exhibition of the same title at the Serpentine Gallery, London, 1987.
