David Scott


Cyanotype art emerged from Scotts’ work as a scientist at the J. Paul  Getty Museum in Malibu. Combining the materiality of art objects with the surreal possibilities intrinsic to the cyanotype process opens up a field of exploration, allowing the incorporation of individualistic images and arrangements that continue to generate experimentation and aesthetic interest. The concept of the cyanotype combines Scott’s interests as a scientist in the chemical reactions of the processes involved with the aesthetic content of the resulting image as a work of art. Each cyanotype is a unique creation, with light oxidising the space between the images inherent in the paper and water, developing the final print, fixed by water itself.
