Tiffany Bociek

Tiffany Bociek graduated from UCSD with a B.A in drawing and painting. Bociek creatively explores the connections between control and play; between her conscious and “unconscious” mind. She refers to inward meditation time as “her wanderings” and consequently call these paintings “My Wanderers.” These “wanderers” in each work embody dreams, curiosity, fear, isolation and joy; they are condensations of her imagination.

Her current work focuses on encaustic painting and incorporates various mediums including found imagery from vintage magazines, hand painted images on rice paper, as well as painting and carving directly into the wax on each painting.
