This exhibition of works by famous French sculptor Gabrielle Wambaugh reflects the integration of space and art. The essence and introspection of contemporary western art in the works can be combined with eastern traditional art. With the hidden truth instantly revealed through space, the exhibition showcases the daring tendencies of exploration in the new era.
Gabrielle Wambaugh is a French sculptor whose works are mostly ceramic and sculpture. Rubber, chalk, plastic, fabric and other materials are used to convey the relaxation, weakness, and fatigue of her works through the density, limit, edge and state of these materials. Since 1993, Gabriel has participated in the exhibitions at the Museum of the Capitol, the Museo Internazionale delle Ceramiche Faenza, the Musée Fabre in France, the Sèvres Museum, the Artist Gallery and so on. Works on display include sculptures, large murals and photographs.

The exhibition features an extraordinary selection of modern and contemporary art pieces for their first appearance in Macau, including Edoardo Tresoldi, Herb Alpert, Jennifer Steinkamp, Refik Anadol, Robert Indiana, Sam Francis, MAD Architects and many more, as Wynn aims to take audiences into a world of innovation and creativity through various media forms such as paintings, installations and digital art pieces.
Art is the ultimate form of humanity, a space where one’s inner self can be expressed freely and truthfully. This exhibition is influenced by Hieronymus Bosch’s stunning masterpiece – Garden of Earthly Delights – which he painted during the time of the Renaissance. His striking painting–both a celebration and warning of sin–illustrates the beauty and sumptuousness of life, while warning us of the dangers of excess. “Wynn – Garden of Earthly Delights” takes you on a journey of contemporary art into a world of innovation and creativity through various media forms such as paintings, installations, digital or interactive art pieces.
