Review:

Agnes Denes is widely recognized as an artist who is able to transform her brilliant original ideas and concepts into innovative visual images and integral texts on an enormously wide range of topics and disciplines. By applying her visual philosophy to analytical writings, she has enriched our insights into problems of human and global survival. --Peter Selz, art historian

Agnes Denes seems to straddle science and art in a way reminiscent of Leonardo. --Donald Kuspit, art historian

In the history of art there gave been few artist's artists individuals who have emphasized in their work the raising of provocative questions and who have also tested the limits of art by taking it into new, unforeseen areas. Agnes Denes is one of these special artists. --Robert Hobbs, art historian
