Disruptors is a series of 4 hand coloured screen prints depicting animals that have disrupted the normal genetic pattern, through genetic mutations, to end up with unusual markings. They are inspired by traditional natural history illustrations but portray 'odd ones out'.

The Quinling pandas are a subspecies of the Giant panda. They are found in the Quinling mountains and differ by its smaller skull, light and brown fur and eye spots being under the lower lid rather than around the eyes.

Most of these mutations are thought to be a result of inbreeding. As populations shrink, and the genetic pool with them, there are less and less opportunities to try out something new and save themselves from disappearing forever. Hail these pioneers in their last chance saloon.
