About

Paul Maxwell Maxwell acrylic casting on paper abstract painting signed in pencil lower right P. MAXWELL Paul Maxwell (1925-2015) was an American artist and sculptor who developed a technique using stencils to create thickly textured and layered surfaces, as well as objects he patented as "stencil casting" but that later became known as “Maxwell Pochoir.” He was also known for creating the “Max Wall” in the West Atrium of the Dallas Apparel Mart; though demolished in 2006, it can be seen as a backdrop in the science-fiction movie "Logan’s Run." His work is highly abstract and often consists of some kind of grid—a form that is non-hierarchical and illustrates a major theme of his work. In 1951, Maxwell exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in a group show which included the work of Miro, Picasso and Matta. That same year, Felix Landau, Los Angeles, gave Maxwell his first solo exhibition in a commercial gallery. Since then, he has had numerous exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the United States and in England, Switzerland, France, Canada and Australia. Maxwell Acrylic Intaglio casting on paper Measures: 29.5" x 22.5".

About Paul Maxwell (Artist)

Paul Maxwell was born in Frost Prairie, Arkansas, in 1925. When Maxwell was nine, the family moved to Bastrop, Louisiana, where he completed high school. Maxwell went on to graduate from Principia College in Elsah, Illinois, in 1950 with a BA in art, followed by graduate work at Claremont College in California. Maxwell was a modern artist and sculptor who developed a technique for using stencils to create thickly textured and layered surfaces, as well as objects he patented as “stencil casting” but that later became known as “Maxwell Pochoir.” He was also known for creating the “Max Wall” in the West Atrium of the Dallas Apparel Mart; although demolished in 2006, it can be seen as a backdrop in the science-fiction movie Logan’s Run. His work is highly abstract and often consists of some kind of grid — a form that is non-hierarchical and illustrates a major theme of his work. Maxwell died in 2015.
