'Fox' by Sally Matthews

This fox, created in 2007, is made entirely of recycled materials including chains, tools, nuts and bolts.

Matthews studied at the Loughborough College of Art and Design and has created commissioned works and exhibited throughout the UK as well as Italy, Poland, and Norway.

"Everyone has their own reasons for using animals in art, but for me I always go back to the animals themselves for inspiration. My love of them for their different form, movement, smell and nature are the reasons for my making them. Their nature even of a domesticated or trained animal is unpredictable and wild, their presence is always enlivening. I want my work to remind people of our need for animals and the example their nature provides us with."
