Typically when you think of finger painting you think of little preschool children and bright colors.
Well, artist Judith Braun wants to rethink your concept. Her finger paint art is featured in art galleries and art museums around the world.
Take a look at some of her work and you will quickly see why.
1. Diamond Dust at the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, VA
This artwork was created using coal dust (coal turns into diamonds) and the long wall of the museum inspired Judith to create a landscape. The painting was done live over seven days and also streamed via the web.
2. For Pat
A symmetrical flower pattern created with charcoal. The sculpture was added by the owner. Commissioned by Maples Rugs, NYC.
3. More For Pat
Another charcoal work, this one focuses on circles and star-burst patterns. Commissioned for the foyer of Maples Rugs, NYC, 2012.
4. More or Less
This surrealistic piece focuses on symmetry and balance. Painted with charcoal on three panels at the Albany International Airport Gallery, Albany, NY.
5. Contemplations and Conjectures
Forming a large circle, the jagged edges of this work balance out the curved form. Drawn on a wall at the Schick Gallery, Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY.
6. What About This?
This plant inspired piece was created over a doorway. The dandelion details are particularly charming. Through the doorway you can see another of the artist’s work in Xerox called “Making My Bed”. Part of a group show at Galerie Andreas Huber, Vienna, Austria.
7. Retrospective of Fruit and Flower Deli
Here you can see the artist at work creating this group of concentric circles. Group show at DUVEBerlin, Berlin, Germany.
8. Eternal Returns
Drawn on paper with charcoal, this set of bird wing inspired pieces are very spiky and yet pair elegantly with the soft curves of the top center section. Displayed at NURTUREart, NYC.
9. Black and White
This piece was created by using white chalk on a black wall. The flower and stars emulate the night sky.Displayed at Spattered Columns, NYC.
10. SOS 4.8in Murcia, Spain
This piece was created with the help of other artists. It is nine feet tall and sixteen feet wide!
These are just a few examples of Judith Braun’s work. She is also part of an upcoming exhibit at the Indianapolis Museum of Art from December 7, 2012 to April 7, 2013 in the McCormack Forefront Galleries. The exhibit’s theme is Graphite.
