Rosemarie Fiore

Rosemarie Fiore creates art out of a volatile medium: fireworks. Enveloped by sulfurous clouds, she resembles a latter-day magus casting spells, donning heavy gloves and a gas mask. The idea came to her on the 4th of July, 2001 when she accidently dropped a smoke bomb on the cement floor and it created a perfect line of dots. Her latest works, "Firework Drawings," is a collaboration between herself and the explosives, an unpredictable and violent working relationship.
