Iris Scott: Fingerpainting

Iris Scott is blurring the boundaries between fine art and child’s play with her vibrant oil finger paintings.


These lively, impressionist scenes fall under the genre of Instinctualism; richly textured images that require no explanation, thus potentially appealing to both innocent and seasoned art lovers.


From the artist bio:
Her paint-heavy finger painting technique and rainbow of pigments, oftentimes utilizes over 100 different oil colors into a single scene. Her paintings portray a dreamy yet dynamic world – a heightened, more lush version of reality. “I want my paintings to be both an escape from our everyday life, and an intensification of the recognizable.”


I love how she is using a medium typically associated with highly refined work to have (during the creation process) and produce a more visceral, kinetic experience.
