    I just thought though; if there was a murder scene, the investigators may have a hard time finding the murderer’s fingerprint/s.
    Ha ha ha.

  17. Judith Braun

    Hiya! Just googled myself and find all these posts! Thank you! Just want to make this point…maybe petty….but they are NOT PAINTINGS…not finger painting. They are drawings, because they are done with charcoal. Nothing wet. Thanks again for looking and enjoying! Judith

    @ Judith Braun

    If you say they are Drawings and NOT PAINTINGS because of NOTHING WET; YOU ARE WRONG!

    I believe that is called more as IMPRESSION PAINTING!
    Instead of paint, you use WET charcoal.
    Normally, charcoal is a dry substance either in solid piece or in powdery form but hard to make them stick to walls as seen above.

    You need to add water to the powdered charcoal to make wet mushy charcoal to get the desired consistency or thickness. Then you use the fingers to make this kind of art.

    Charcoal can stick to your hand and create such an impression on canvas if i am not mistaken. Wet charcoal can get dried up and just blow away in the wind in the form of powder.

    i just realize, her finger must be hurt. being dragged on for such long and wide wall..

  23. Enrico Martinez

    @ Vishy
    Though you suggest that “Wet charcoal can get dried up and be blown by the wind.”

    Well… There is no wind indoors.
    And… “The charcoal that stick to your hand” as you say is already dry (like the dried “wet charcoal”), therefore could also easily been blown by the wind (if any). It is easier to imprint (or paint) with wet charcoal than dry charcoal.

    As you can see in the video, the artist has a rectangular plate of (wet) charcoal. She dips her fingers into the plate, then applies them easily to the wall.

    If the charcoal is DRY (as you say) then the artist would have more difficulty in applying more pressure to her canvass. Also there would be trouble breathing bits or dust of powdered charcoal; whereas none in the WET charcoal.

    ALSO, the caption says “Finger Painting” therefore the artist has used WET CHARCOAL as its medium, and not dry.

    @Enrico Martinez:

    The artist herself says that her art is not created with ‘wet’ anything.

    Can you produce art like hers? I’m guessing not.

    To me it looks as if she’s holding a charcoal ‘pad’ of sorts and if it is a ‘soft’ enough charcoal it will easily transfer from the tablet to her fingers to the wall, with little to no extraneous dust and no moisture needed.

    Quit being such a troll and let the art speak for itself!

    On a more personal note:
    It’s so wonderful to see the shapes and flowing patterns created by natural hand movements, really organic and the negative spaces are very intriguing. The flow of the landscapes is super-reminiscent of ‘Starry Night’ in the best way too. It’s so interesting how these simplified lines can reflect such compelling emotions!
