Jamie Adams

American artist Jamie Adams paints the human form with the expertise of an European Old Master. His rendering of musculature and gradation of skin tone is exacting and hyperrealistic.

John Divola: Zuma

I’m just back from a break in St Ives where I came across a stunning selection of works by John Divola, on show in Tate St Ives’ curved gallery overlooking Porthmeor Beach, as part of its Images Moving Out Onto Space exhibition.

Divola’s Zuma 1970s series are beautiful photographic records of derelict Californian beach huts, observed over two years as they are ravaged by fire, vandalism, and the artist’s own graffiti. Mostly taken at dawn or sunset, the resulting photographs are lit in such a way as to flatten the ocean view, making its destroyed buildings appear strange and otherworldly.

Shown above is Zuma #3, 1977.
