For a long time, Iris Scott painted using traditional brushes. According to the artist herself, the idea to create paintings using her fingers emerged during her stay in Taiwan. So that’s how this unusual technique was born.
Putting on surgical gloves, Iris Scott uses her fingers as brushes, while still drawing with oil. As a result she gets pretty original paintings, which can be easily attributed to the genre of post-impressionism. As Iris says, it is much easier to draw pictures with your fingers than with your hands. The fact is this way is easier to distribute the paints on canvas and create colors. By the way, the answer to the question why Taiwan has become the starting point of this type of creation is pretty simple. After graduating from the Art School in Washington, Iris moved to Taiwan. Here she began to paint. The air conditioning was working only in the room where she was painting, but where she washed her brushes, was very hot. Not wanting to be boiled alive, Iris tried to paint with her fingers.
