Otherworldly and radiant are the first words felt as I laid eyes on Jyo’s incredible Line of fire image. It was chosen for its fragility, abstract qualities and the beautiful texture and tones. The light plays with the subject,  highlighting and enhancing it so effortlessly. I adore the lines and depth emanating from it the surreal light transforms this simple image into magic.  It reminded me so much of the wonder of this earth, the soft quality of the leaf broken in is a sign of time and the erosion of it. We cannot wait to have this image in our gallery and be able to gawk at it in person.
