Maggi’s Mag is a collaboration between Middle Plane magazine and British artist Maggi Hambling creating a dialogue between art and fashion. The issue reads as a visual interview made up of photo series presented in a non-linear format that sheds light on the artist in varied ways – at times intimidating and confrontational, at others generous and humorous. From drawing on her vices and behaviours to exploring the unusual juxtaposition of fashion and art, the editorials include
a series of intimate photographs of Hambling shot by Juergen Teller, cinematic stills by Sam Rock inspired by her love of the sea, a series by Paul Kooiker that draws on her penchant for meringues and a study by Isabelle Wenzel inspired by Maggi’s life drawings.

Created especially for Middle Plane, 20 limited edition signed copies of a book of the artist’s daily morning ink drawings will be available.

About the artist

Born in Suffolk in 1945, Maggi Hambling is widely regarded as one of Britain’s most significant and controversial artists. Working across painting, sculpture, printmaking and installation, Hambling’s direct and committed engagement with her subject produces profoundly moving work. In 2017, the British Museum hosted a retrospective of Hambling’s works on paper, and a major retrospective exhibition of the artist’s work across all media was held in China in 2019, at both CAFA in Beijing and the Guangdong Museum of Art in Guangzhou. Maggi Hambling: 2020 at Marlborough Gallery in London (15 October – 21 November) will present a new series of paintings and this autumn will also see the artist unveil a new public sculpture for feminist Mary Wollstonecraft in Newington Green, London.
