Early on a Tuesday morning, the beautiful medieval village of Corenno Plinio on Lake Como awakens. Narrow streets, old worn stairs. And deserted streets wherever you look, except for a single older woman climbing slowly up the steep steps early on. Here you will find many buildings with original details and no bars, restaurants or other tourist attractions. A gem!

'Awakening (2)' is an artwork in my collection 'Lost Cities', it is a digital transformation of my artwork Awakening.

Awakening (2) - Surrealistic Impressionistic cityscape by Jacob Berghoef
Awakening (2)

General info on this artwork

This is a digital artwork, printed with high-quality ink on museum-quality cotton paper (Hahnemühle Photo Rag® 308gsm). The work comes in a limited edition of 10, signed and with a certificate of authenticity.

To create these artworks, I start with one or more photographs made by myself. Then I edit it in multiple process runs and in several layers by color manipulation and adding and editing multiple digital photographic effects. I do that until a surrealistic atmosphere is created that touches me and tells the story I want to tell.

The photograph(s) I begin with has/have an impressionistic, surrealistic or abstract realist style, which is the basis for all my work.

Through my artworks I ask you to reflect for a moment on the nature around you, on the beautiful feeling that nature can evoke, on your actions to support the wellbeing of the earth and everything that lives on it, on what humanity loses when many of us continue on the destructive path of ever more greed and consuming, on how you can survive in this rapidly changing world…
