Three fox guardians, gathered at twilight, in a moment of foxish quietude and contemplation (or possibly in the exchange of fox gossip).
There are quite a few urban foxes where I live, living in dens in the gardens of suburban homes, beneath sheds, and possibly in the woods. They are anything but rare yet I find it exhilarating whenever I see one, every single time. They are fierce, untamed; they are of the wild.
Earlier this year I spent many hours at twilight with two vixens in the rambling gardens of the local museum. It’s not been an easy year, and I found their presence and company a joy and comfort.
This print was inspired by Julie de Graag’s woodcut print ‘Three Cats’ from 1916, a simple and stark composition. When I saw her image I immediately wanted to do a fox version of it.
