Firework Drawings
Jan. 8 - May 12, 2013

"Firework Drawings" is a selection of large-scale works on paper created using live fireworks and their pigments. Employing this distinctive medium in a performative process, Fiore strikes a balance between control and chance, the lasting and the evanescent.

This dynamic selection demonstrates a strong interplay between powdery, amorphous ground and a complex and sophisticated manipulation of line, color and collage that in turn translates the raw energy and refined excitement of a fireworks display.

Presented as part of the 2013 deFINE ART program

Reception: Tuesday, Feb. 19, 6:30-8 p.m.

The exhibition is free with SCAD Museum of Art admission.
