Healing Forest

Lying on our backs in the woods, we observe nature's symphony flying above, and the gentle dance of light amid the trees—a phenomenon known as Shinrin-Yoku, or "forest bathing," celebrated in Japan. It refreshes the body and mind, enhancing health and well-being. Anuscka's original blog post inspired a digital artwork, capturing this therapeutic essence.

Kissing The Clouds

Morning glow
The sun kisses the clouds
Blinded by the eye

A beautiful autumn morning. The sun appears on the horizon, its warm light kisses the clouds above the fields in Kobberø, Thy region, North Jutland, Denmark.

'Kissing The Clouds' is a new artwork in my collection 'Wavy Fields’.

General info on the artwork Kissing The Clouds

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.

For these artworks, I start with one or more photographs made by myself. 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.

ALL WE NEED IS LESS CONSUMING

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…

Trees Cry

Thick clouds of black
smoke darken the sun
Eyes tear,
trees cry
The sun colors the evening
in the hues of the flames that
eat tree after tree
How high may become
the price the future
will have to pay?

I feel it as my mission to make people aware of the beauty, power and simultaneously fragility of nature. Yet at the same time, this sometimes feels like hypocrisy because I am part of the society that is causing the destruction of the habitability of the earth. Even though I do my best to live simply and keep my carbon footprint considerably smaller than "the use" of 1 earth.
At times when I feel that, I also feel an urge to create a work with a poignant message....

First Kiss Of Light

A bright morning arrives fresh and new
Pine trees lean toward the first kiss of light
We walk together among the trees
as the sun climbs into a warm spring day

Go for a walk early in the morning and keep your eyes open for that first kiss !

Rooted

Stillness in your heart
The roots of a tree
in a November storm

In all the turmoil of the world, there are trees that remain standing perfectly straight. Offering protection and holding on no matter how severe the storm rages around them. Deeply rooted, connected to the earth and to the trees around them.
Find what connects you to the earth and to people around you, find your stillness. Cherish it and hold on to it. If something or someone doesn't bring you stillness, let go.

Silent Light

I stand still and watch,
as the pale light of dawn
silently dispels the night.

I must admit that I have enjoyed converting a small selection of my forest photographs into intensely dark black and white artworks. They were of course meant to express my concern about the climate and the lack of climate action.

But they have also become a special way for me to look at my earlier work.
I hope you also enjoyed how the sparse light gave these artworks an intimate atmosphere.

Herewith the last one in this triptych. Early in the morning the light penetrates into the darkest corners of the world. After every night, a new day arrives…

'Silent Light' is a new artwork in my collection 'Secret Places'. It is inspired by the recent fruitless attempts by world leaders to arrive at decisive measures and concrete actions to combat the climate crisis.

Whispers

Empty words echo over the earth
Lost in broken promises,
a sad song 
whispers between the trees

I am a thoroughly positive person, there is not much that can upset me. But there is 1 issue that I am genuinely very concerned about. Not for myself, I won't live to see it.
So today a post to express that....

On a walk on the shore along the fjord where we live, the sun emerges from behind the clouds just before it sets. An enchanting display of winter colors, slowly drowning in the calm waters of the fjord.

I made this photo during a walk on the borders of the Limfjord, North Jutland, Denmark.

Winter Sunset (9)

Not quite a sunset yet, but close.
When the sun pierces through the cloud cover in winter, I have to take my chance. Too often the sun disappears behind a thick gray blanket immediately after briefly showing itself, only to show its face again the next day (or even a few days later). And if it also feels like the sun kisses the world before going to sleep, I have another good reason to quickly make a series of photos....

Burning Sunset (4)

In a burning sunset,
the last breath of the day
welcomes the night

A cold evening at the end of a heavily cloudy, gray winter day. Just before the sun sets, the clouds open up allowing the light for a brief but intense moment to say hello to the night.

Sunset over the North Sea, seen from the hamlet in North Jutland, Denmark, where I live.

MJR Gallery: Duende

A duende is a fairy- or goblin-like mythological creature from Spanish, Portuguese and South American folklore. Duendes also have some traits similar to goblins and kobolds.

The Duendes are forest spirits. They help people who get lost in the forest, so that they will find their way home.
In time, the Duende is also the spirit of evocation. The physical and emotional response, elicited by art. So having the Duende is equivalent to that thrill that makes you smile or cry in front of a particularly expressive artistic performance.

I made 'Duende' with an old analog camera. It was the first impressionistic forestscape photo with that camera.
A sunny morning on a path in a forest, near the city of Nijmegen in The Netherlands. The sunlight seems to dance across the path. It moves quickly from tree to tree. As a spirit that keeps an eye on me to see if I'm doing okay.

Limited Edition prints in 6 sizes are available in my collection in the online art gallery MJRGallery.com

Nebulae

A bright white light? Eternal darkness?

It is my conviction that after our death our spirit, our soul, travels to its origin somewhere in the universe. Once arrived, our energy is reunited with the energy from which everything around us once originated.

(text continues below the image)

Nebulae - Photographic art based on abstract realistic photographs made by Jacob Berghoef
Nebulae (4)

As we know from the beautiful photographs taken by the Hubble telescope, the energy visible to us in the universe consists of light from countless stars. This light illuminates enormous gas nebulae in many fascinating colors. This is how I like to see myself. As a very small colored particle of dust. After leaving this physical existence, this particle returns to such an infinitely large, multicolored cloud of gas and dust.

The way there is an enchanting journey through space. Alternating between silent darkness and clouds full of light, color and tranquilizing sounds. After that long, fascinating journey, we arrive at our designated spot in that infinite space.

Nebulae - Photographic art based on abstract realistic photographs made by Jacob Berghoef
Nebulae (1)

In the project Nebulae I wanted to visualize that journey. That is how a series of abstract photographic artworks came into being. Made by transforming nine abstract realistic photographs of sunsets over the North Sea along the coast of the Thy region, North Jutland, Denmark.

The series ‘Nebulae’ will have its own, new collection on Saatchi Art. Limited and open edition prints are available there, or contact me for a quote.

As soon as one of the artworks has been added to my Saatchi Art portfolio, you will be able to visit the page of that artwork by clicking on the image.

Shrouded (3)

While I was trying to photograph a sunset before the sun was completely below the horizon, I realized that the beauty of light is often determined by how it is filtered, veiled or scattered. Here on earth the light is always filtered by something. The atmosphere, clouds, a canopy, mist… In fact, all these 'filters' make the sunlight much more visible, even almost touchable… Shrouded (3) is a new photo in a small series of a sunset, photographed in my abstract realistic style through high grass.

New Website

As of November 1st you can see my artworks on this new website!

The current website is a bit dated after 5 years, so it’s time for a new look. In a design made by my youngest son, I’ve been working hard the past few weeks to fill it with a selection of my work.
Not everything is ready yet, but I’d appreciate it if you take a look.
The current domain name jacobberghoef dot art remains in use and will also bring you on the new website from November 1st.

Shrouded (1)

When making this artwork, I questioned my love for light, contemplating whether it's the direct brightness or its filtered beauty that captivates. I experimented by using grass to soften the glare, produce the piece 'Shrouded (1),' and invite contemplation on nature's beauty.
