Once Upon a Time …
the observations of Hillegon Brunt
Visual artist Hillegon Brunt (b. 1964) studies the world around her. With precisely accurate observation of humans, animals and collected objects, she has developed a refined style of making drawings as well as collages with attention to the smallest detail. The approach for <i.Once Upon a Time . . . is an artist’s book designed as a film. In cooperation with graphic designer Art Collart, Brunt developed a concept in which she tells a new story with existing work from her extensive collection of drawings, woodcuts, etching and collages produced over almost a decade. By arranging her work, by zooming in or out and adding reference images, Brunt allows the reader/viewer to enter a creative world informed by her observations and insights. Organized into 11 parts (or acts), this fascinating book includes a perceptive look into Brunt’s work by visual artist Anuli Croon and a full index of the work.
