Judith Ann Braun fingers are magical
Wednesday, September 26, 2012
With a career spanning over three decades, Judith Ann Braun has tested the limits of their artistic muscles. It began as a self-styled "realistic figure painter", and worked through the common fight anyone who tries on an artistic quest, that of finding one's voice in the chosen medium.
Fast forward to the 21st century, where the evolution of Braun's work has led to the fingering series, a collection of coal dust landscapes and abstracts "painted" with brushes, but not his fingers. Braun has a specific interest in symmetry, as evidenced by patterns over a number of parts and labor Fingering in symmetric Procedures collection. His fingerprints are evident closely at some of the paintings, but a step back and grandeur of imagination extends Braun in a landscape of rolling hills, overhanging trees, delicate flowers, and a thoughtful navigation.
