Many if not most of Jeihan’s figures were also dark and rather gloomy. But when we look at the black eyes of Jeihan’s Nadia, we no longer become scared or frightened. Rather, through the black eyes we should imagine hope, optimism, and all the other positivity, that the woman figure in this painting is emanating.
Jeihan was best known for the black eyes in the figures in his paintings, which initially was a result of his failure in painting eyes realistically. Later, he realized that the black eyes served as a metaphor.
Through the black eyes of the figures in his paintings, Jeihan suggests his viewers to always keep an open imagination about the things that could not be reached by the physical reach of humans alone through the open eye and to always look deeper and farther, like the black hole of the universe.
