Big Eyes

30-80 cm diameter

brand : Mahnaz Karimi


The “Big Eyes” is a collection of eyes paintings, eyes that are full of textures, colors and emotions. What inspired the artist was the ancient Sumerian belief in the eye as the window to the human soul, representing emotions and feelings. Eye is the reflection of our soul. It is especially true when we look at each other. “The tongue may hide the truth but the eyes-never!” Eyes are windows that show our soul. Our emotions flow in our eyes. Eyes convey the sense of happiness to others before a smile can do. 

The paintings are performed on wooden boards using alcohol ink colors and pigment pastes. The eyes are in various sizes from 30cm to 80cm in diameter. 

Each artwork is painted in three layers of resin to show dimension, depth and textures more naturally.
