Incredible Finger Paintings by Judith Braun

New York-based artist Judith Braun creates beautiful murals using nothing but her fingers dipped in charcoal dust. The artist often uses her both hands simultaneously to the extent of arms’ reach. According to Judith,  this allows the inherent symmetry of the body to generate a gestural vocabulary of mark making.

“Abstraction keeps the images free to be anything, while the symmetry resolves that fluidity into something, like liquid energy crystallizing. The crystal metaphor is also reflected in the carbon medium of graphite that, under heat and pressure, becomes a diamond. Working within constraints prompts a proliferation of possibilities that self organize into groups and subgroups, from which I then choose some to render carefully by hand…with diamond dust.”
