In 1994 Annett began painting the 'Atavist [interloper]' paintings. A series of 22 five by 3 feet canvases, in 1998 they were shown in MK Gallery where Annett collaborated with Rowena Willard-Wright [English Heritage] in the text for the book 'The Atavist Tarot' published by Foulsham in 2003. The paintings and animation, 'The Fool's Journey Part1 were shown the same year in Dulwich Picture Gallery and subsequently at the University Centre MK and on the FRINGEMK Whitewall in December 2010 as part of a retrospective of Annett's painted works. Annett, Willard-Wright, Dr, Anand Sagger and Tom Kaser, went onto to develop the 'Art of Memory' project linking genetic function and archetypal symbols, lecturing at Peterhouse College Cambridge and Canterbury University at the International Cytogenetic Conferences with Digital Scientific UK.

The Atavist Tarot is published by Foulsham and is avavilable in most good bookshops and on line.
