It may be hard to believe but artist Judith Braun [1] creates these breathtaking works of art [2] using just her fingers dipped in charcoal. Since 2004, Braun has been working on her simple but beautiful series “Fingerings”, an ongoing project in which she uses walls as canvases to explore liberating, improvised strokes with her hands. Braun freely expresses herself with gestures and movements recorded in carbon – without creating waste and excess.

Braun often uses her body to center herself within a piece and give the work a symmetrical quality. And with her in the middle it appears as though elegant charcoal wings are spreading out behind her. Some of her most extraordinary pieces are her detailed landscapes which twist and turn into the distance using layers of charcoal drawn imagery.

For more pictures take a look at some more of her work on her website [1].
