The Artist:

Paul Maxwell was born in Frost Prairie Arkansas, in 1925. He graduated from Principia College, St. Louis Missouri in 1950 with a B.A. Degree in Art. He continued his academic education at Claremont Graduate School in California, Lousanne Switzerland, and the University of Houston, where he was an art instructor. He has lectured at universities in the United States, and produced an art educational television series for national public television - about contemporary art. Maxwell founded the Contemporary Arts Foundation in Oklahoma City, which has been an important influence on the cultural scene in Southwest USA.

Maxwell has been commissioned to create public and private wall murals including: sculptures for Will Rogers International Airport in Oklahoma City; Security Life Building in Denver; and the 60' x 150' mural in the Dallas Apparel Mart, fondly called the 'Max Wall' which was used as the backdrop for the MGM film classic set in the 23rd century, "Logan's Run". Maxwell, a painter, printmaker, and sculptor is best known for his patented printmaking medium, an acrylic casting process. His works are handsome unusually heavy relief design generally on paper and canvas, but also on other surfaces. Maxwell's work is collected and exhibited in corporate collections and museums including: Dallas Museum of Fine Arts; DeCordova Museum, Massachusetts; Houston Museum of Fine Arts; Oklahoma Art Center; University of Texas Museum of Fine Arts; and Smith college Museum, Massachusetts.

The Art:

Paul Maxwell calls his printmaking technique is called "stencil casting". The process is similar to silkscreen however it uses a unique acrylic paste like material which permits work with a heavy, precisely controlled relief to attach on assorted surfaces, including paper, vinyl, wood, or fabric. Most of Maxwell's work is on heavy paper and canvas. The quality of relief or "depth" is achieved by the application of a stencil process and acrylic resins, in consort with the other materials and techniques described.
