Hi, I'm Nini and this is the tumblr where I try to convey daily inspiration for the beauty loving soul. I'm inspired by the ancient Greek ideal of "ARTE" and their ideas about beauty, wisdom and love. (More about the philosophy of this place here...)
Please note: I try to credit all artists properly, if you discover an uncredited post and wish me to complete an information or remove works for copyright reasons, please let me know.
Also: Most of my posts are reblogs I have discovered via a great number of inspiring tumblr users I follow. I warmly encourage everyone to have a look at the notes below each post to see who blogged the content first or before me and follow these people as well! They deserve my full respect and praise - I am grateful for them to dig out such wonderful posts day after day!
New York-based artist Judith Braun creates beautiful murals using nothing but her fingers dipped in charcoal dust. The artist often uses her both hands simultaneously to the extent of arms’ reach. According to Judith, this allows the inherent symmetry of the body to generate a gestural vocabulary of mark making.
“Abstraction keeps the images free to be anything, while the symmetry resolves that fluidity into something, like liquid energy crystallizing. The crystal metaphor is also reflected in the carbon medium of graphite that, under heat and pressure, becomes a diamond. Working within constraints prompts a proliferation of possibilities that self organize into groups and subgroups, from which I then choose some to render carefully by hand…with diamond dust.”
