Dinomouse Sequel Mutant X

About this artwork

The print combines a film-still of a dinosaur in a landscape from the fantasy adventure film ‘One Million Years BC’, with an image of a mouse with a human ear grafted onto it. The mutant mouse was created by scientists as the first step in replacing damaged or missing human body parts. The artist comments: ‘I think the ear-winged mouse has a mythical quality, an aberration to match any unicorn, faun or mermaid.’ This work is from a portfolio of prints by eleven different London-based artists, called ‘Screen’. The title is taken from the screenprint technique but also refers to the fact that most of the artists had worked with film or photography.
