Rosemarie Fiore's "Smoke Painting" Performance

Inventive mechanics, choreographed performance, and chance surprises come together in the work of Rosemarie Fiore. For the past fifteen years, she has been painting with colored smoke fireworks. For this performance, Fiore used a tool on view in the MOCA Jacksonville exhibition, Call & Response, for a community demonstration at Space 42.

Working in a range of media including paintings, drawings, blown glass, and installation, Rosemarie Fiore creates vivid abstractions through various technological mechanisms, such as fireworks, lawn mowers, waffle irons, and cars. With these tools, Fiore's works present both intricate kaleidoscopic effects and simplistic smoke-streaked colors and stained layers.
