... kiss my Contemporary Ars (this, too, shall pass)

About this page

Thank you for showing interest in my work, and thanks for visiting.

These pages display creative works by Claus Schmidt (signature: "clsc"); mostly painting and graphics. Styles, techniques, and degree of finish differ.

What is known as "contemporary art" has little place here and less sympathy. I will not claim that my personal pet problems are more important or more interesting than the challenges faced by past masters. Then again; I am only human and sometimes I feel a need to comment on current issues anyway.

On these pages

Everything on these pages is hand made by me to the fullest extent possible.

You will find finished work as well as work-in-progress on these pages. Sometimes even early pre-work sketches and outright experiments. I like to give readers a glimpse into the process in stead of only presenting finished works.

I will sometimes add relevant discussion to the images presented here as I like to offer a little behind-the-scenes knowledge. And -- not least -- I like comments even if it seems like my audience here is a little shy.

The vast majority of my early work - especially pre-1990 - is neither in the gallery nor in the article pages: only off-line, and partially missing.

The Gallery

At you will find the site gallery. Please note that the gallery is work-in-progress and it is not being updated as frequently as the article pages.

The Feed

For your convenience you may want to use the RSS News Feed. It is a "full feed".
