Judith Ann Braun's Fingers Are Magical

With an art career spanning more than three decades, Judith Ann Braun has tested the limits of her artistic musculature. She began as a self-described “realistic figure painter,” and worked through the struggles common to anyone who endeavors upon an artistic pursuit, that of searching for one’s own voice in the chosen medium. Fast forward to the 21st century where the evolution of Braun’s work has brought us to the Fingerings series, a collection of charcoal dust landscapes and abstracts “painted” using not brushes but her fingertips. Braun has a specific interest in symmetry, as evidenced by the patterns she follows in a number of the Fingerings pieces as well as work in the Symmetrical Procedures collection. Her fingerprints are obvious up close in some of the paintings, though a step back and the grandeur of Braun’s imagination sprawls into a landscape of soft hills, overhanging trees, delicate florals, and a reflective waterway.

Ephemeral Portraits Cut from Layers of Wire Mesh by Seung Mo Park Using a process that could be the new definition of meticulous, Korean sculptor Seung Mo Park creates giant ephemeral portraits by cutting layer after layer of wire mesh. Each work begins with a photograph which is superimposed over layers of wire with a projector, then using a subtractive technique Park slowly snips away areas of mesh. Each piece is several inches thick as each plane that forms the final image is spaced a few finger widths apart, giving the portraits a certain depth and dimensionality that’s hard to convey in a photograph, but this video on YouTube shows it pretty well. Park just exhibited this month at Blank Space Gallery in New York as part of his latest series Maya (meaning “illusion” in Sanskrit).

Fractal Art - Oneness4All Fractal Art Fractal Art by oneness4all on Apr.15, 2009, under Fractal Art Figurative Sculptures Embedded in Gallery Walls by Matteo Pugliese These are just a few of many wonderful pieces by Italian sculptor Matteo Pugliese who lives and works in Milan. His bronze sculptures of men, often made from multiple components, appear to be trapped in the vertical space of gallery walls. My Star Wars-addled brain is reminded of Hans Solo encased in carbonite, though I find these aesthetically much more pleasing.

Minas Tirith Made From 420,000 Matchsticks Feb 20, 2014 Minas Tirith (aka the White City and City of the Kings) is the capital of Gondor, a fictional city and castle from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth. Completed in 2010 after three years of work, artist Pat Acton recreated the famed city using 420,000 meticulously placed matchsticks and a lot of glue. He used an additional 24,000 small wooden blocks to construct Mount Mindoulluin, which supports the colossal matchstick structure. To create his artworks, Acton purchases matchsticks (without the sulfur tip) directly from match manufacturers. Amazing Concept Art of a Blade Runner-ified Paris This one place shown in the pictures, just right of the Eiffel Tower is called La Beaugrenelle.

Gravity-Defying Land Art by Cornelia Konrads German artist Cornelia Konrads creates mind-bending site-specific installations in public spaces, sculpture parks and private gardens around the world. Her work is frequently punctuated by the illusion of weightlessness, where stacked objects like logs, fences, and doorways appear to be suspended in mid-air, reinforcing their temporary nature as if the installation is beginning to dissolve before your very eyes. One of her more recent sculptures, Schleudersitz is an enormous slingshot made from a common park bench, and you can get a great idea of what it might be like to sit inside it with this interactive 360 degree view. What you see here only begins to sratch the surface of Konrad’s work. You can see much more on her website. All imagery courtesy the artist.
