Once Upon a Time… the observations of Hillegon Brunt is a book designed as a film.

Visual artist Hillegon Brunt (1964) studies the world around her.Her drawings and collages are precise and accurate observations of humans, animals and collected objects. She has a refined style of making drawings with the attention of the smallest details.

In co-operation with graphic designer Art Collart she has developed a special concept, in which she tells a new story with existing work.

By arranging her work, by zooming parts in or out of it and add reference images, the viewer / reader of the book will enter the 'world of Hillegon Brunt', her observations and her created world.

Hillegon Brunt lives and works in Rotterdam.The book is a collection of drawings, woodcuts, etchings and collages from the period 2010 - 2016.
