Jaap Hillenius, Trying to Get Closer

Jaap Hillenius, poging om dichterbij te komen

Directed by Kees Hin
Netherlands, 2006


He was always busy making the absolute painting, one of Jaap Hillenius’ sons says about his father. The artist who was killed in a car accident in 1999 steadily built, averse to conventions and trends, an autonomous oeuvre, indefatigably looking for the ultimate beauty.
