At first glance, Deborah Claxton's work appears to be simpler than it is. Claxton, a Glenelg artist, has developed an innovative form of art known as "paper painting." Painstakingly cutting and attaching brightly colored pieces of paper onto a canvas, Claxton creates pictures that are striking and unusual. Using a magnifying lamp, Claxton attaches tiny pieces of colored paper that have been cut exactly to specifications. The large piece of acid-free watercolor board she uses as a canvas contains hundreds of numbers that correspond to the shape and color of the paper she must place there, initially giving it the appearance of a huge paint-by-number set. "People are just blown away because it is so unbelievably unique," said Kristine Woodward, owner of the Woodward Gallery in New York, which represents Claxton.
