'Varx' - the name is inspired by the West Country pronunciation of ‘fox’ - gently touches on the contradiction in nature between beauty and brutality. On first glance, we are greeted by the sentinel gaze of Reynard from behind foxgloves. Peer closer and we notice he's licking his lips as the remnants of his supper float away on the evening air.
