Von Lintel Gallery is pleased to present Eclipse — an exhibition of new work by artist, Rosemarie Fiore. The exhibition marks the artist’s second solo show with the gallery and her first in the city of Los Angeles.

Rosemarie Fiore’s unconventional paintings and drawings are made by exploding and containing live fireworks. She alters and builds devices to harness the chromatic and mark-making effects of smoke bombs to create vividly-colored, multi-dimensional works.

Large-scale abstract pieces boast complex, highly sculptural surfaces that hum with the vigor of experimentation and vibrant imagination. Using a rolling machine of her own invention, Fiore wields burning fireworks like paintbrushes to impart deep blues, rusted oranges and bright magentas onto paper. As the device spins and twists, expressive traces generate in its wake. The process continues with the artist cutting, scoring and tearing the color-drenched material into overlapping circles and lines; creating a dense tapestry that amplifies the firework’s forceful and unpredictable dynamic. 

The more intimate pieces focus on the smoke. Here, the artist controls the aggressive burst of the firework to yield minimalist, ethereal compositions that capture the ephemeral footprint of the initial blasts. Clouds of transparent color land in concentric circles and blend with the ease of pastels. A spare collage of cut circle patches intertwine with rhythmic streaks and shimmering grit. In the end, the work is a meditation between machine and artist, chaos and control.

Rosemarie Fiore received her BA from the University of Virginia, Charlottesville and MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Solo and group exhibitions include: Weatherspoon Museum, Greensboro, NC; Albright Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY; Lehman College Art Gallery, Bronx, NY; The Savannah College of Art & Design Museum of Art, Savannah, GA; The Bronx Museum, NY; The Queens Museum of Art, NY and The Franklin Institute of Science, Philadelphia, PA. Her work has been reviewed by publications including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Art in America, The Village Voice and New York Magazine.

Rosemarie Fiore lives and works in Bronx, NY.
