Claas Gutsche work includes graphics and sculptures. His sculptures are bronze casts of natural materials such as spikes, bird nests or certain flowers.

Gutsche's large-format linocuts, however, are usually kept in black and white and marked by a strong light-and-shadow-dramaturgy. With its dark atmosphere they build on the classic genre of the nocturne, but also provide a reinterpretation or development of the technique of linocut is. They show motives like watchtowers, fences, residential developments, architectural details or monuments. First familiarize acting, they ensure only at a second glance or after the Motif Search for irritation. For example, the Housing Development Krumme Lanke Berlin Zehlendorf part of a former Nazi colony, the half-timbered house in Wuestefeld communicates with the known as the "Cannibal of Rothenburg" Armin Meiwes and the "Monument" turns out to be a memorial to the war cemetery Waldfriedhof Halbe where the victims of the last major battles of World War II are buried.
