Iris Scott

Brooklyn based artist, Iris Scott, paints vivid oil paintings with just her fingertips. Having traded in brushes for latex gloves, Iris Scott is history’s first artist to abandon brushes altogether and focus entirely on finger painting - and legitimizing it in the world of fine art.  She works with paint like a malleable, nearly clay-like medium, pushing it along the canvas in the thick, impressionistic smears that have become her trademark. Scott is part of an entirely new art movement in Brooklyn called Instinctualism. Her art celebrates - and builds upon - the imaginative, representational, and color-saturated paintings of artists like Van Gogh, Dali, Picasso, Monet, Munch, and Khalo.
