Wietzie uses compositional rhythms, bold coloration, and sweeping gestural knife strokes to convey an abstract Iris landscape in the Joan Mitchell style.

Wietzie created Iris Intimacy with a painting knife using different mark making techniques, which resulted in a textured surface. The flowers are done impasto style.

Wietzie uses the symbol of the flower to create a special intimacy with the audience, the latter being the perfect representation of human emotion: "it changes every minute and dies too early". The intention is to create finished work that is abstracted and more expressional than representational.

The sides are painted in continuation of the painting.
