This beautiful artwork by South African artist David Bucklow featuring the entrance to Kalk Bay Lighthouse. It is a large original acrylic painting on canvas. The artwork is entitled Kalk Bay Lighthouse.
The village of Kalk Bay was probably established in the 17th century as a small community of lime-burners who used kilns to extract lime from the seashell deposits for use in the construction of buildings. mined the nearby deposits of limestone. Its name was derived from the Dutch term for lime. In 1795 the Dutch located a small military outpost here, and after 1806 it began to flourish as a fishing village and whaling station.
Kalk Bay has one of the last remaining working harbours in South Africa with a fishing community proud of its heritage. It is a community that has remained intact throughout South Africa’s turbulent history, the only place in the country where all residents successfully opposed the Group Areas Act of the 1960s. Fishing still operates today although it is more low-key.
In an artistic style that is most definitely photo-realistic and showing tremendous talent and technique in the detailed treatment of his artworks, artist David Bucklow’s content repertoire includes many of South Africa’s iconic landscape and seascape scenes, as well as African portraits.
David Bucklow is a fine artist living in Cape Town, South Africa. He was born in 1969 and has been practising art for many years, ultimately making it his profession, and producing work for the last 30 years. David’s paintings explore a wide range of wildlife and local landscapes.
He works with a selection of acrylics on canvas to capture highly detailed imagery – almost as though experiencing his subjects and scenes from life and through that precise perspective. His interest in wildlife and the environment was established as a young artist and developed swiftly as he observed the African biosphere. He progressed quickly as he discovered the endless wonders of nature within this beautiful continent.
David’s work has become widely admired and collected nationally and internationally. Some of his most recognisable pieces feature magnificent portraits of wild animals within contrasted and evocative landscapes. Viewers are drawn into his large-scale paintings through direct eye-contact with the animal, an intimate moment for the viewer to contemplate their existence within nature.
