- Nelson, Robert coined the term Olive for the collaboration between Lyndell
Brown and Charles Green.
In an essay for their exhibition Una Selva Lucida
Nelson examines the idea that Olive's greatest achievement is the mixing and borrowing
of styles - a bit of La Tour here, a whiff of the School of Fontainebleau there.
He rejects this notion. Olive goes much further than dead-end appropriation.
What she does, he concludes, is posit an almost Platonic idea of the Old Masters.
