"When I see light on an object I see it in layers. I see not only the color of the object, but also the color of the light, direct or reflected and its impact on the object. The light creates a connection in the composition, each object absorbing and reflecting, becoming a mirror of its surroundings. When the paintings are done they often evoke in me a feeling of nostalgia, watching the rain on a window pane, feeling the sunlight on a summer evening. Synaesthesia, simply, means a union of the senses, one sense inciting another. This seemed to fit well with my art, as for me, the beauty of the work always awakening feelings of joy, serenity and peace." - Jill Hackney
