Pulsating blue
float gently between the trees
forest in bloom

I show you how I see the earth from, let's say, a few centuries from now. An amalgamation of the forests and the oceans. With hopefully in the distant future a rich ecosystem that has managed to adapt to the new conditions.

Will there still be room for humans in that world?

Yes, I think so. Will there also be room for the Western man? No, absolutely not, unless they learn to be one with nature again. It will take several generations for that to happen. I sincerely wonder if the generations of Western man now living on earth will be able to bring about this transformation. It will take more time for that, I fear....

The title of the third artwork in this new collection is 'Bloom'.

When huge numbers of jellyfish, or any plant or animal, appear suddenly, it is called a ‘bloom’. Jellyfish in a bloom can number in the millions.

Bloom - Pulsating blue float gently between branches forest in bloom - Surrealistic digital photo art, part of the collection Drowned Earth by Jacob Berghoef

General info on this artwork

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

Maximum size is 225Wx150H cm / 90Wx60H inches. Please let me know if you would prefer another size.

For these artworks, I start with one or more photographs made by myself, which I transform in multiple process runs and in several layers by digital painting, color adjusting and adding and transforming multiple artistic effects, until a surrealistic atmosphere is created that touches me and tells the story I want to tell.

Prints are available, ask for a quote or contact me through a message. Prints are also available in my Saatchi Art portfolio at the artwork page and here.


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…
