Barbara Böhlke was born in Swakopmund and now lives in Windhoek. Böhlke received her honours degree in Fine Art in 1989 and has been an active part of the Namibian art community ever since. Böhlke has exhibited extensively both locally and internationally. She is well known for her large-scale painterly works. While she is often inspired by the expansive landscapes and skies of Namibia Böhlke says that her works “ mostly reflect a psychological ‘inner’ space,  rather than describing a physical space”. For this exhibition Böhlke has worked with ash, charcoal, white acrylic as well as otjize pigment and yellow ochres which are found in Kaoko, northern Namibia.

Böhlke exhibited as part of StArt Art Gallery's group exhibition Being Here in 2017 and in the solo exhibition Shifting Horizons in 2018.
