Tivoli

This event includes new paintings on canvas and on paper, and sculptural pieces.

Leon's works display an intriguing dialogue between modernist aesthetics and a concern for the contemporary Pacific context. Autobiographical elements are also part of the Tivoli project. Listening to the Future employs colour to spectacular effect and has an engaging exuberance. In the artist's words, 'Art should inspire peoples and cultures to grow, transform and look to the Future.'

Leon studied at the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague and moved to New Zealand in 1986. He has exhibited widely in Europe, the USA and New Zealand, with works in the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington. He has a major installation at The Farm (sculpture park), Helensville.

A resident of Waiheke for some years, Leon now lives in Henderson.
