a little artist: rosemarie fiore

I have a soft spot for dots. Call me cutesy, but I don't care. And the above pieces of art are anything but cutesy. These are Firework Drawings by artist Rosemarie Fiore. Rosemarie creates these collages by exploding fireworks onto paper in enclosed containers, resulting in rich colors that she then collages by layering circles of paper on top of each other. The drawings exude an abstract other-worldly kind of quality. I think it's so dynamic and vivid, the image on the right is currently my desktop wallpaper. I'd love to own one of her pieces, I'm quite sure I could stare at it for hours. Click to see the image larger.
