Wietzie Gerber
Lorgues, France

When Wietzie Gerber broke her femur in 2013 from a biking accident, she was in a wheelchair for three months. During this time she had difficulty using a paintbrush and began using a painting knife instead. Her accident presented her with a blessing that led Wietzie to develop her unique technique — a surface full of small stipples of paint from the knife. This decadent surface of texture brings her abstraction to life. In addition, the color, shapes, and the subtle allusions in her titles, lead you through the emotional subject of her work. Although the paintings have a quiet, melancholy feel, 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 color, strong lines, and copious markings.
