Artist & Educator
Examining the intersection of education and religion, Bockerman employs various spatial relationships in order to dissect the iconography of our lives. Using iconic objects, images, and installations that vividly recall education, Bockerman manipulates materials to highlight assembly-line processes within education, creativity and conformity, mass production, and innovation. Especially as a teacher, she is dedicated to using art to help others discover how they learn and process information, as well as awakening their own creative impulse.
Art is a lifelong passion for Bockerman, one that has fueled her own work, and also motivates her to help others discover their relationship with the world around them. Through art, Bockerman wishes to foster a more aware, reflective, and compassionate world.
