I first discovered the work of Judith Braun about a year ago and wrote a short piece about her beautifully symmetrical finger drawings that she refers to as “fingerings”. Braun’s work recently exploded in both scale and complexity, shifting from the abstract to the literal in this new mural entitled Diamond Dust. The piece was painted over several days in February in front of a live audience at the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, Virginia using fingerprints created from the fine powder of ground charcoal. Diamond Dust is on display through June 1. (via job’s wife)
