This movie is perhaps from the eighties and at the end features a
girl that was working on a conceptual art piece, and the killer who
chases her down the sculpture--one of the two was carrying a scissors.

That's a bit vague. Do you have anything else you can share about the movie you are looking for? Does the killer exclusively use scissors? Or is it just one scene? Do you know of any actors that were in the film? Really, even the smallest extra detail could help.

Here's a quick guess: for some reason, "April Fool's Day" hopped into my head. I don't know why though.....

Maybe Im confusing it with something else but the movie may have had some fashion
murders theme, and the killer sending images cut from the newspapers. The sculprure
she's making is a very long tunnel like thing but with metal ribs. perhaps metal rings
with transparent plastic in between...I think.

Or The Burning, but I don't reckon it's that.

I was thinking about this a bit at work and I wonder if "The Dead Zone" could be the movie you're looking for. Christopher Walken stars as a man who has psychic powers after awakening from a coma. During one part of the film, his talents are called upon by police to find a killer whose MO was murdering young girls with a pair of scissors. I don't think any of the victims were sculptors or artists though.......

Well, now you guys got me wondering if perhaps the killer didnt have scissors.
It wasnt 1) the burning(shears), nor 2) the deadzone nor the exorcixt 3!
Try to use the fact that the killer chases her down an architectural sculpture she's making

Could it have been Schizoid from 1980 with Klaus Kinski?  Killer used scissors in that.

This movie is perhaps from the eighties and at the end features a
girl that was working on a conceptual art piece, and the killer who
chases her down the sculpture--one of the two was carrying a scissors.

                                                                 Thanks,

If the killer falls on and is impaled by the sculpture at the end, that is definitely Kenneth Branagh's Dead Again.

Your film might also be Robert Bierman's Apology (1986) with Lesley-Ann Warren and Peter Weller which is similar to what you're looking for.

Trevor

I think you got it cause I looked up Apology, and I remember the movie having
this tape recordings of confessions playing. Now does the killer use scissors in that
one? Regardless I think this is the one I was thinking of.
