VERG Now Featuring Artwork By Iris Scott
During your next visit to VERG, make sure to check out the artwork by Iris Scott–a Brooklyn-based artist whose unique take on finger painting sparked an oil paint movement.
Scott left brushes behind in 2009 when she discovered that she could manipulate thick oil paint with the tips of her fingers in ways that brushes never could. Rather than having a brush between her and the canvas, Iris says that she likes to be able to touch and feel the paint. Armed with surgical gloves and hundreds of different colors, Iris is best known for her works of shaking wet dogs, although she tackles a breadth of imagery, including landscapes, people, flora, fauna, and marine and urban scenes. Iris’ paintings have been featured on the front page of Reddit as well as in Forbes, Barron’s, Business Insider, USA Today, NowThis, CBS New York, and American Art Collector Magazine. Additionally, two national galleries carry Iris’ originals, and some of her well-known collectors include Microsoft, Coca-Cola, and Children’s Hospital.
Beautiful and affordable prints on canvas and paper can be purchased through Iris’ website, with sizes ranging from very small to larger than life. Follow her online for a glimpse into the Brooklyn studio.
