Gaïd Ombre had two solo exhibitions until now.
2014 was marked by the project ‘ Between Art & Kitsch ‘. In this exhibition Ombre wanted to find out if art can be just a pretty picture.
The year 2015 was dedicated to the project ‘Dutch nudes’. This project was inspired by the pressure on women. In particular women of around age 40. How much pressure they experience about their appearance and their ambitions . Why should 40 be too old to start something new? Famous women live their life under a magnifying glass. Nude they are even more vulnerable than regular people. They say thus: this is me and I this is what I do and who I am. That is the metaphor for Ombre. I am now an artist. That feels naked and vulnerable but it feels also very good.
