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.

After 28 years, in the summer of 2018, Jill Hackney was able to return to Giverny, France to paint in the gardens of artist Claude Monet. Through the Foundation Claude Monet Jill was able to paint in solitude for hours in the blissful space, feeling the resonance of the spirit of Monet. This opportunity allowed the artist to explore a new pathway with her signature mark-making.
