Iris Scott

"My name is Iris Scott, and I am here to revolutionize the art world with the tips of my fingers. I am going to continue painting for the next 60-70 years of my life until I am completely blind or unable to move my hand across a canvas. I am interested in two things: 1) getting my paintings into museums so that little girls can see women artists celebrated as much as their male peers, and 2) Helping humanity think of animals as equals: like us, they are divine beings—let’s paint animals, not eat them."

“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, Art Critic for New York Magazine
