This series of paintings is based on love.and the feelings it elicits. The electro chemical reactions to love in the brain, and the desire it causes.
We are here to evolve, learn, accomplish, inspire, and create. There are combinations of these elements that give us drive and will. No matter where we come from, what our status is, intellectual prowess, or position in life, I feel there is one more thing beyond the elements that makes most of us the same. Love. Beyond all the distractions and glamour, pain, and suffering, I feel we all want to love and be loved. I'll close this book with the wish that you have love in your life and heart and that it attracts the love you deserve.
"Love is the Answer" is the first of the series and depicts the love of a couple as they affectionately lean towards echother.They are formed simply by the archway the defines day from night. A golden film that seperates the dark from the light. Their love is universal and exists in the complexity that is the world around us. Each thermal whisp in the space time of the scene is executed to visulaize the wondrous complexity of even the most simple landscape. Know that the same complex fluidity flows within and throughout the space between your molecules, with each complex pocket formed dby the movement of temperature and corpuscular movement. The world around us is a wondrous place, but just behind the verneer of our senses, lies a world beyond the dreams of most.
Love is the Answer Oil on Canvas 12"x9" Louis Markoya - 2020
Love is the Answer is based on the tiny painting to the left, which has been brought to visualization utilizing the very latest in Neural software and deep dreams.
That painting which I did long ago was based on a combination of two Dali works shown below, Couple with Heads full of Clouds and Architectural Reminiscence of Millets Angelus.
THe Alchemy of Love Oil on Canvas, 32"x24" 3/2021
Even the most worldly art connoisseurs are acknowledging that, when it comes to the work of St. Petersburg artist Louis Markoya, they have simply never seen anything quite like this anywhere.
What “this” is spans a remarkably innovative approach to art, allowing it to leverage optical technology and mathematical principles – plus a dash of classicism – in order to create a whole new way of thinking and perceiving subjects not normally covered in artworks.
Markoya, who worked and collaborated for six years with the celebrated Spanish Surrealist painter Salvador Dali, is committed to melding classical painting techniques and subject matter with the latest fractal and lenticular technology.
While distinctly his own, the Dali influence can clearly be seen in the work as the artist feels he is creating both continuity and an evolution to the work he did with Dali.
