Judith Braun! And Amazing Finger Paintings on Wall

Sometimes the easiest way to do something may be the most complex. The best tools to make our future brighter we received from nature. A great artist who uses his fingers and charcoal is Judith Braun.She uses her fingers for paint idyllic landscapes and lively, abstract patterns on the walls.

Braun says. “In all my other work too, I choose parameters within which to experiment, notice sameness and difference, and manifest surprises,” she says. “This is a philosophical, psychological, and even scientific approach I prefer, so that my drawings are the result of a process and practice that I initiate, rather than just being a contrived design that I execute.”

Each painting takes just two to five days to execute–she’s a fast fingerer–but requires many months of advance planning. “I consider my studio practice time a bit like musicians or dancers, who build up a physical memory,” she says. “Then, when I arrive at an actual gallery wall, I can let myself go with certain confident, though not precise, gestures.” Read more about her work here.
