Diamond Dust: Finger Painting at an Entirely New Level

On View

Past Exhibition

Time-lapse photography ofJudith Braun
We captured Judith Braun by time-lapse photography while she was working.

One artist. One wall. One week. That was the story with New York-based artist Judith Braun, who worked in front of a live audience in the Waitzer Community Gallery in February 2012 to create a 50-foot mural using nothing but her bare hands.

Braun’s signature style involves taking fingerpainting to an entirely new level, as she draws directly on the wall with her fingers dipped in charcoal dust. This was the largest site-specific project of her career. Pick up one of our iPod Audio Tours when visiting and watch a time-lapse movie of her work.

The mural is so large, and the illusion of depth so strong, photographs do not do it justice. Come see it in person! It’ll be on view through the summer.

Diamond Dust: Finger Painting at an Entirely New Level
An artist known for symmetrical work, Braun placed this in the center of her mural.
Diamond Dust: Finger Painting at an Entirely New Level
The final product, 12 feet tall and 48 feet long, defies photography and needs to be seen in person.

The artist at work.

Judith Braun has been involved in the New York art world since the early 1980s and her longstanding participation in the city’s emerging network of alternative art spaces is notable. Her career began and flourished in organizations such as Art in General, Artists Space, The Drawing Center, NurtureArt, and White Columns. She finished her MFA degree at the University of at Albany in 1983 and, after moving to New York, participated in Democracy: Cultural Participation with the renowned collaborative, Group Material, composed of Julie Ault, Felix Gonzalez Torres, and Doug Ashford. In 1994, Marcia Tucker selected Braun’s work for the reputed Bad Girls Show at the New Museum, which has been credited as the first exhibition to explore the impact of third wave feminism on the visual arts.

Braun has shown and is currently represented by Fruit and Flower Deli, in Stockholm, and Galerie Conrads, in Düsseldorf. Later this year her work will be part of a group exhibition at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
