Resolutely contemporary, Wietzie Gerber's work focuses on abstract landscapes and flowers with special attention to colour and movement. Her abstract work is filled with compositional rhythms, bold colours, and sweeping gestural movements with painting knives. Wietzie's work displays feelings of intense energy and passion. There is a sense of radiance in the way she captures light as it moves through her compositions. The work feels expansive, as if growing out beyond the confines of the canvas, creating space with the drama of its bold colour, strong lines, and copious markings.
Wietzie pays particular attention to the material and works all her canvases with a palette knife using different techniques. The "marks" have an important place in the works of the artist, they give life to the painting.
