Artists Judith Ann Braun, a contestant on season 1 of ‘Work of Art: The Next Great Artist’, does what she calls “fingerings” to create beautiful, flowing symmetrical works. She uses various materials (charcoal, pastel, chalk, etc.) to paint her works. My favorite part of her work is her skill in using negative space so effectively. Using empty (negative) space, and making it work, is something very few can do well. Also, by using her fingers as the tools of implementation, she gets a varied and real organic feel to her work. Though almost all of her new work is abstract, not all her work is “fingerings.”

“Abstraction keeps the images free to be anything, while the symmetry resolves that fluidity into something, like liquid energy crystallizing. This crystal metaphor is further reflected in the carbon medium that, under heat and pressure, becomes a diamond. I like to think I’m drawing with diamond dust” -Judith Braun

As stated, not all of her work is finger painting. These works show her abstract and symmetrical style in other mediums.
