Raphaelle Goethals is an artist from Belgium who now lives and works in New Mexico. She creates atmospheric paintings, often with a grid of small spaces where the eye can rest. Goethals sees the sky as our sea in her beloved New Mexico, often referring to it as a “liquid sky”.

Goethals’ paintings have been featured in numerous museum exhibitions in the U.S. and Europe, including a recent solo exhibition at the Morris Graves Museum. Raphaelle Goethals is one of a group of remarkable women artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Agnes Martin, Agnes Pelton, Susan Rothenberg, Linda Benglis, Florence Pierce, and Judy Chicago–instrumental in creating the world-renowned contemporary art center of Santa Fe.
