Artist’s Description:

DNA – Professor Sir Alec Jeffreys who invented DNA fingerprinting at the University of Leicester on the 10th September 1984. I painted a distant DNA strand behind him as he humbly talks about DNA fingerprinting origins. This is to portray an unseen and yet to be noticed future for this world changing technology. He and his teams knowledge have enabled so many criminals (and innocent) to be justifiably sentenced through his invented DNA fingerprinting and the list of DNA usage is endless. Mother Nature has planned for our genetic evolution until this point. Perhaps in generations to come gene therapy could be a future in which a group of privileged people become stronger, smarter and more beautiful than the rest or perhaps we can be trusted to use this knowledge for the greater good.
