The art of Clemens P. Suter
We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are. ~Anais Nin
For that reason I do not comment much about the meaning of individual paintings, but I am pleased to provide some background about the philosophy behind all of my work. As a biologist, I have an ardent interest in nature. Evolution is one of the most wonderful forces of nature; as modern science shows, we are all genetically connected, and the distinction between what defines humans and animals is also becoming more 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. Although most of these paintings depict animals, these creatures have been humanized, emphasizing their unique characters and sometimes adding some humor.
WHAT SOME OF THE BUYERS SAY
Our initial painting (one of the RAVENS) was recently complemented with a PUFFIN. Although both paintings are different in object, they hang on our living room wall very harmoniously; united through style and technique. We enjoy them every day.

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. Paintings that have found new owners are marked with “SOLD”.
