Gutierrez’s work is, in part, shaped by his Peruvian roots: pre-Colombian forms and native Peruvian art. The paintings’ subject matter engages traditional themes of Peruvian peasant life. The artist is also influenced by the modern French masters, including Cézanne, Gauguin, and Matisse. He is a brilliant colorist, reflecting the palettes of Gauguin and Matisse and the juxtaposition of contrasting colors of Seurat’s pointillism. Some of his paintings employ a Cubist simplification of forms and volumes. In "Two Women Resting," Gutierrez employs a more subdued range of colors than in his later paintings. The artist simplifies the figures, and curving forms echo each other, creating a restrained harmony.
