One of the most prominent female artists of our time, Agnes Denes' incredibly varied body of work seems to be more relevant now than ever, giving visual form to the synergies between art, science, mathematics and environmental concerns. This work, printed exclusively for ArtTable, re-imagines of one of Denes' most iconic forms, a snail shaped nautilus spiraling delicately through space, as an ode to The Nautilus, a destroyed amphitheater designed by Denes. Unlike Denes' earlier, idealistic depictions of the nautilus shape, such as her "Snail Pyramid" in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, "The Ghost of Nautilus: The Soul of an Image's" dark background and shimmering lines tell a different story - one of a vision unrealized. Denes' work is housed in over 40 public collections across the world, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; The National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; The Musee National D'Art Modern Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France; and the Kunsthalle, Nurnberg, Germany.

Purchase your print today to support ArtTable's ongoing mission of supporting the leadership and diversity of professional women in the visual arts, and to acquire a work by one of the leading female artists of our generation.
