Born and raised in Turkey, Nihal started drawing and painting at a young age. Despite her demonstrated talent in art, she studied physics and nuclear engineering and worked in the software analysis in the U.S. and Canada more than 10 years. The self-trained artist began traveling to art shows and exhibits. She characterizes her work as “the gap between representation and obstruction.” Her work consists mainly oils and acrylics. Kececi’s paintings have transformed alongside her as she has moved through different stages of her life and grown spiritually.
“My works explore the perception of light as revealed through nuance of colors, creating a space between the natural and abstract. Working with the glazing technique my paintings are developed through numerous translucent layers of pigment suspended in thin acrylic layers which, creates an environment of diffused light that remains minimal and abstract”.
In late 2013, Kececi found an old warehouse in the alley off K Street Northeast Washington DC and turned it into a chic and modern gallery that doubles as her residence.
