'Urban foxes are about; these flagrant opportunists slink into streets deserted by bankrupt revellers. Their clandestine visits to my night street are becoming bolder; tonight they are on my doorstep, at the threshold, almost within reach. On a dark summer street a fox trots, stops still for a moment, disturbed; then resumes its rapid pace...' Rachel Levitas is writing about the feral night time creatures that inspired her series and our new exhibition 'Still Life Interrupted', a one woman show of oil paintings. Foxes are the wild and playful outsiders evoking fear and loathing as well as admiration for an obstinate opportunistic survival instinct but these paintings represent much more than the clandestine antics of familiar but unknowable animal.
