PAINTINGS 2016–2020

Recently, Goethals has introduced additional color into her predominantly monochromatic and earth toned palette. As this body of work evolved and developed, it became apparent that on some deep level, it was referencing Water: estuaries, ocean masses, droughts, currents, melt. Before that, the White paintings were like…painting Air. In other words, the artist is distilling the Landscape to its essentials: Earth (the Lumens series started in the late nineties), Air (Mnemosyne and Dust Stories series), and now, Water.
