We slow-dance, my head on your heart, your breath in my hair, your hands on my hips, our feet slower perhaps because we’re moving together. I created "A Long Slow Dance" with a painting knife using two different mark making techniques, which resulted in a lovely textured surface. The flowers are done impasto style, in which undiluted paint is applied thickly onto the canvas so that it stands out from the surface. This decadent surface of different textures brings the painting to life.

Getting to Know Wietzie

Wietzie utilizes a unique technique of her own invention. She creates a surface full of small stipples of paint using a palette knife. This decadent surface of texture brings her abstraction to life. In addition, the color, shapes, and subtle allusions in her titles lead you through the emotional subject of her work. Although the paintings can 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.
