Born London, 13th November 1960
Scott Engering has always been fascinated by rocks and minerals and, as a geologist, most of his working life has been spent surveying, observing and recording stone in its many forms.
The subject of Scott’s art is based on photomicrography – photographs of microscopic subjects. When polarised light is shone through a thin section of rock, only 0.003mm thick, it is refracted by the internal crystallographic structure of the minerals to produce an astonishing array of vivid colours that vary according to both the chemical composition and orientation of the individual interlocking crystals.
John Ruskin, an advocate of “artistic science”, wrote lyrically about the beauties that could be seen using this technique. Using traditional photographic colour film to record his observations, the essential character of the rock has been retained wherever possible but, using some of the tools of modern digital imaging technology, Scott has taken this idea to a higher level.
Scott’s work is designed to produce a big splash of colour on the walls of modern bars, cafes, clubs, restaurants and other places of leisure.  They are available as unmounted or framed prints and can be tailored to the individual requirements of customers. For discerning clients, they can be used for light boxes and can also be applied to ceramics, architectural glass and fabrics.
