The cover image by Iryna Yermolova. It is taken from her exhibition, The Journey. This exhibition was previously shown at the Red Gate Gallery in London in October 2010.
Yermolova is hugely stirred by the beauty of the English countryside, yet she equally draws a lot of inspiration for her paintings from her Russian roots, childhood in the Ukraine as well as Orthodox religion. The power and sadness of Russian icons has always deeply touches the artist. Experimenting with colours, textures and different materials all brings her enormous pleasure and inspiration.
