The art of Clemens P. Suter


We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are. ~Anais Nin. WELCOME!  I am pleased to provide some background about the philosophy behind my work. As a biologist, I have an ardent interest in nature. Evolution is a wonderful force of nature; as modern science shows, we are all genetically connected, and the distinction between what defines humans and animals is fuzzy. Thus, animals are individuals, and deserve the same respect that we (should) give fellow man. Animals have strong survival instincts in the harshest of landscapes, showing tremendous resilience as individuals, but also as team players. Many of my paintings depict animals, they have been humanized, emphasizing their unique characters and adding some humor… and vice versa for my paintings of humans.


Our initial painting (one of the RAVENS) was recently complemented with a PUFFIN. Although both paintings are different in subject, they hang on our living room wall very harmoniously; united through style and technique. We enjoy them every day.” ~H. & D.


New paintings are added constantly, so revisit this page. Each painting is original work, created with the best materials, e.g. in oil colors and on canvas. Structure and depth (not fully appreciable in the photos) is created through multiple layers of ochre collected in the French Provence. Below are all paintings – those that are available, and at the bottom (clearly marked) those that are no longer available,


These original and unique pieces of art are highly competitively priced. Calculate the price as follows: 3.5 x length + width. This means that a 40x40cm painting costs as little as 280€, a painting measuring 70x20cm costs no more than 315€. And even the largest works (measuring 150 by 120cm) only cost 945€.
