Eclypse is the first work Nahas painted in a geometric style. It signals his increasing interest in abstraction and its relationship to Islamic art and design principles. Nahas is inspired by nature and geometry. His paintings are filled with multi-coloured shapes and arrangements along different planes. They represent moments in a constantly changing universe.
