Rosemarie Fiore is a very special artist who paints her masterpieces using fireworks.
Armed with gloves and a gas-mask, Rosemarie lights the fireworks and releases them on a smooth concrete surface, creating abstract paintings over 2 meters wide. Of course she wouldn’t be a true artist if she just watched them rolling around and just take credit for whatever traces they left.
Miss Fiore uses several techniques to control the fireworks, including covering them up with a bucket, to contain them, tying them to the end of a pole and restraining them with rails. The different sizes and colors of the fireworks-circles are the result of different chemical compounds.
