ART: Incredible Finger Drawings by Judith Braun

As strange as it sounds, New York-based artist Judith Braun creates all these wonderful landscapes and abstract patterns using nothing but her fingers dipped in charcoal dust.

Keeper of the Golden City from The Guardians series

I believe that I subconsciously paint women a lot because I come from a family of women. I have many aunts and the strongest woman I’ve ever known—my grandmother—raised me. Men were around, but the women have always been my protectors, caretakers, and support system. “The Guardians” are symbolic of those that protect nature, beauty, spirituality, and a myriad of other things—they are the warriors. The paintings are metaphors for the unknown—the mystical and sometimes the literal. - Tamara Natalie Madden

studiomuseum:

The Studio Museum invites artists living or working in Harlem to join Director and Chief Curator Thelma Golden to review their work and discuss their artistic endeavors. From 12 to 3pm on Sunday, February 9, Golden will hold fifteen-minute meetings with ten artists selected through a lottery system. Activating artist Theaster Gates’s work See, Sit, Sup, Sip, Sing: Holding Court in the Studio Museum atrium, this event celebrates the exhibition Radical Presence: Black Performance and Contemporary Art and the Museum’s ongoing commitment to the Harlem arts community.

Each artist should submit their name, home or studio address in Harlem and phone number to holdingcourt@studiomuseum.org by 6pm on Friday, January 31, 2014. Individuals selected through the lottery will be informed via e-mail and given further instructions on Tuesday, February 4, 2014. Participants will be asked to prepare a current resume or CV, a maximum of 10 images (no original artwork) and an artist statement of 500 words or less.

Theaster Gates’s installation, See, Sit, Sup, Sip, Sing: Holding Court (2012) evokes a classroom that has been relocated to the Museum’s atrium. Created from tables, chairs and desks salvaged from a now-closed public school on Chicago’s South Side, this installation–much like a classroom–is designed as an experience for learning created by the people assembled in and around it.
