Abstract Dissection: Alex Olson at Lisa Cooley

Alex Olson dialogues with her paintings, building up layers of oil on linen, asserting with palette knives or opining with a window scraper. When she is satisfied with the exchange, she backs off, revealing an array like those comprising Palmist and Editor, her second solo exhibition at Lisa Cooley. Each is so imbued with the history of its creation that it's not quite accurate to call them “nonreferential”. Like the exhibition title alludes, we must read them. — Brian Fee, Austin contributor
