“I am interested in light and space, time and memory. Creating dreamlike images allows the viewer to draw associations with their own remembered landscapes, resulting in a meditative and or emotional response. Intense colour, translucency and captured light combine to evoke notions of an ephemeral landscape and encourage one to consider the transitory nature of human existence”. Lisa Cahill 2013
