the tiger's face

Love this series of paintings from Nicholas Stevenson. "In these paintings I am attempting to recreate one of my favourite sensations. The unnamed feeling you get from spotting a distant object on a beach, looking more bewildering and terrifying as you stroll towards it. Old boat? Driftwood? Giant Squid? Body? Or maybe the sensation of looking in to an empty cage at the zoo; the sign with the latin name is present, so something must be in there somewhere, but where?"
