Believe it or not these large works on paper are made by exploding and containing live fireworks, resulting in bursts of saturated color that are overlapped and collaged into abstract compositions. The artist who creates these pieces is Rosemarie Fiore and she lives here in New York City. We think they're fantastic and thought this would be the perfect way to kick off the holiday weekend. Below is an image of Fiore in action as well as a video of her talking about her inspiration and the process behind her work. Enjoy! Hope everyone has a fun, safe and relaxing weekend (oh and by all means...please don't try this at home).
