Gothic Mechina is painting based on a future depiction of the famous American painting ‘American Gothic’ by Grant Wood. Here Tanis conveys the message of what we may internally become with technological advances in the future. And what we are evolving into unconsciously siphoned along with the times we are living in. Our world has evolved so much in the last century. It has been so quick in its expansion of ideas in scientific discoveries and commercial consumerism. ‘If we don’t slow down, we will become robotic in a world that is losing itself and its own humanity’, Tanis says.
For this very unique and unusual painting Tanis was influenced greatly by the works of H. R Giger. He was an imaginative futuristic Swiss Artist who created the original drawings and paintings for the Hollywood blockbuster ‘Alien’ films starring Sigourney Weaver. Giger’s work was very dark in nature. It portrayed monstrous extraterrestrial beings or bio-mechanical beings living within confined mechanical spaces on ships from different planets. They were creatures who evolved to their surroundings in dark squalid and factory like spaces. From looking and researching these artworks, Tanis had a wealth of ideas to work with. As a result Gothic Mechina was created.
