Shit We’re Diggin’: Rosemarie Fiore’s Firework Drawings
Rosemarie Fiore’s firework drawings are created by containing and controlling firework explosions. She explains:
“I bomb blank sheets of paper with different fireworks including color smoke bombs, jumping jacks, monster balls, fountains, magic whips, spinning carnations, ground blooms, rings of fire, and lasers. As I work, I create imagery by controlling the chaotic nature of the explosions in upside-down containers. When the paper becomes saturated in color, dark and burned, I take it back to my studio and collage blank paper circles onto the image to establish new planes and open up the composition. I then continue to bomb the pieces. These actions are repeated a number of times. The final works contain many layers of collaged explosions and are thick and heavy.”
We love ‘em. You can see more photos and work here.
