"Agnes Denes is Hungarian-born conceptual artist living and working in New York City. Often called “the grandmother” of the early environmental art movements, Denes is interested in humans’ perception of natural cycles and stewardship. Without any doubt, her most famous artwork is Wheatfield, a Confrontation from 1982. Denes spent six months creating it, which included planting a field of golden wheat on two acres of rubble-strewn landfill near Wall Street in Manhattan." ~ Widewalls.com
