Direct Conversations is a 2015 oil on canvas by Olea Nova. It is an abstract piece in which none of the splashes and gobs of paint seem to rest in conversation with one another, despite the piece’s title. The splashes of black, dark blue, and maroon paint cover chunks of the canvas in a haphazard manner; if the title is meant to be heavily read into the painting, the conversation that the piece represents must be a violent or conflicting one. This piece rests in discontented correlation with Nova’s other pieces in the Evanston Art Gallery.
