“Iris Scott makes ‘finger paintings’ portraying tigers in the night, bowerbirds, South Asian drag queens, and herself as a towering belle of some fantasy ball. So much sincerity and obsessiveness come through here that you lower your skepticism and revel in the lushness and love.”
— Jerry Saltz , Pulitzer Prize in Criticism

Iris Scott Finger Painter

My name is Iris Scott, and I intend to continue finger painting for the next 60+ years, until I am completely blind or unable to move my hand across a canvas. I swapped brushes for gloved fingertips in 2009 at the age of 26, and standing here today, ten thousand hours of practice later, I’m delighted I made the leap. It was during that special year in Taiwan, one tropical afternoon, that I was lucky enough to run out of clean brushes. A few swipes of oil paint at the tips of my fingers and I was hooked.

From 2014 through 2019 I called Brooklyn home, but just before the pandemic made headlines I got a funny feeling it was time to leave NYC. We packed up the studio and all our belongings and headed to the Southwest. Living in Northern New Mexico and building a home/studio in a very remote location has been the gift of isolation. It’s so quiet here, the dirt road we live on is 10 miles from pavement, and the nearest store is 45 minutes away.

In May of 2019, just prior to leaving NYC, a magical thing happened: I was accepted by the art world. It took a decade of painting full time, and hundreds of finger paintings to get to a point where articles by critics in New York Magazine, Smithsonian Magazine, and on ArtNet not just noticed, but praised my work.

I believe the era of excluding animals, landscapes, and plants from high art is fading, and it’s being replaced by a more environmentally-conscious art world.
