Sanam Khtibi speaks of her work saying, “my women are vulnerable and yet predators at the same time. They are also depicted within the same plane as the animals, who represent power, danger, and our primitive instincts.”
While she uses art historical references and traditional compositions, she juxtaposes them with her innovative and unique style that pushes the boundaries of figurative art. Her cohesive colour palette and indistinct figures really allow both the rich landscape and the figures in motion to stand out in their own right. We hope you enjoy her enchanting magical naturalism, filled with narrative and optical beauty.
