Barbara Wildenboer (b.1973) explores philosophical concepts of aesthetics across a variety of mediums, producing ethereal and transfixing artworks. Drawing inspiration from the work of individual scientists, discoverers, authors and mathematicians, she exposes the connections between a myriad of life forms – from the microscopic to the immense. Her 50ty/50ty artwork refers specifically to the mathematical sublime (an aesthetic concept first articulated by Immanuel Kant) and how the idea of a boundless, formless universe transcends the limits of reason.
Wildenboer has had eight solo exhibitions and has been awarded several international residencies in Jordan, Palestine, Colombia and Malaysia. In 2011 she was selected as one of the top 20 finalists for the Sovereign African Arts Award, for which she received the Public Choice Prize.
