In the pentures (a word coined by the author to describe her pictures made with pencil) , Cemile keeps on testing the possibilities of black-and-white, and produces pieces of art giving a taste of engraving. The striking impact of the pentures relies to a great extent on the use of the evocative power of tones. The black-and-white acquires an independent colour strength.

As the objects and figures picked up from reality enter the rectangular frame of the pentures, they experience a metamorphosis and are transformed into a component of a fantastic pictorial world, gaining an aesthetic identity. The juxtaposition of unrelated elements strengthens the effect of this world.

In this context, her personal iconography, which is a significant element of her pictorial language, tends to take shape. In her pentures some motifs are hard to read in their metamorphosed form, but it is these forms which give them a special flavour.

Pictorial language of Cemile, as Kandinsky put it, arises from an “internal necessity”, and on that sense, it profoundly “touches the human soul”. It obliges one to question the interaction between life and art. 

Let's give an ear to this silent voice. It tells about our sorrow, our hopes, about withdrawing into ourselves and opening ourselves to life, about our fears and courage.
