Dante Leonelli

In the early 70s, Dante Leonelli and two other artists, Robert Janz and Michael McKinnon, formed a group called Continuum. An extensive tour of the three artists work was shown throughout the UK by The Arts Council of Great Britain, culminating in the first exhibition of kinetic light art to be shown at the Hayward Gallery. Dante Leonelli creates large-scale light installations; the environment around these structures plays an important part to the work itself, as though they have a life of their own. His most recent commission is the Notting Hill Gate Halos, a pair of interactive solar powered halos of neon light, which monitor and reflect changing levels of environmental traffic and air pollution. To be installed at Notting Hill Gate 2005-06.
