Khebrehzadeh’s work extends to drawing, painting and animation and is realised
through the use of unusual media, for instance olive oil and resin on paper.
The chosen subjects, often animals and human figures rendered delicately and
with a calligraphic line, invoke an imagined reality, which is nevertheless strongly
tied to the artist’s experience and her geographical and psychological disquiet.
Although concrete and accessible, Khebrehzadeh’s vocabulary, at once visual yet
poetical, retains a sense of mystery, leaving a great amount to the viewer's imagination.
As the artist says: “Mystery is good… I don’t want things definable.”
