Domenica Bockman

Domenica Bockman

Born: 1969

Hometown: Ithaca, NY

Based in: Ithaca, NY

Domenica's abstract paintings explore geometry, color, surface and texture. Innovating with encaustic (pigmented wax and resin) on wood, she often interrogates the limits of "the square" and grid by creating counterintuitive relationships among different panel arrangements.

Born in the U.S. and raised in Africa, she has been greatly influenced by hand woven textile craft, notably Kuba grass cloth weavings from the Congo, mud cloth from Mali and Phulkari embroidered tapestries from India. Her work fuses traditional handmade sensibility with minimalism and non-objectivism. Unplanned breaks in patterns and spots inadvertently revealing the presence of the human hand, inspire her.

In Ithaca, NY, Domenica also owns, manages and curates the fashion collection at Petrune Vintage clothing boutique as well as art shows at The Petrune Gallery. She is also co-founder of Cayuga Arts Collective, a nonprofit for artists
