AGNES DENES. Ed. by Jill Hartz. Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University, Ithaca, 1992. Distributed by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 208 pp. with 210 ills. (132 col.). 32 x 24 cm. LC 92-71409 0295972785 In English.
Thoroughly examines the singular body of work produced since the late 1960s by noted Hungarian-born American artist Denes (b. 1938), presenting a wide selection of her mathematically derived graph drawings, diagrammatic variations on pyramid forms, map projections and x-ray images as well as proposals for public sculptures, parks and other projects. Four critical essays discuss the evolution of Denes's oeuvre and her intellectually rigorous analytic techniques while substantial commentaries by the artist on many of the featured works illuminate the synthesis of principles drawn from biology, physics, linguistics and philosophy central to her explorations of existential and ecological issues.
