Judith Braun (USA) - Fingering (detail)
New York-based artist Judith Braun has been working on her simple but beautiful series “Fingerings”, an ongoing project in which she uses walls as canvases to explore liberating, improvised strokes with her bare hands. While Braun creates the amazing floral and cosmic patterns, she also freely expresses herself with gestures and movements recorded in carbon – without creating waste and excess.

"Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence,a footstep, feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love"
