Born in 1961. Lives and works in Germany. Reduction to pure Forms. The reality captured in his works is often only the carefully staged basis for the art within. Hillert aims to expand upon the concept of the image as it was to begin with before reducing the photograph to simple, basic shapes of extreme aesthetic expressiveness. You have to let go, permit yourself to take a more personal analytical perspective, and let the power of the images and their interpretations take hold of you in a personal way. The images are capable of opening up emotional gateways that we never knew existed, something which he achieves with abstract visual compositions, objects from the world as we experience it, and also with portraits.
