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.

Analog Brain 1: Homage to
Ed "Big Daddy" Roth
Analog Brain 2
Ed "Big Daddy" Roth
The First Mechanical Computer
Mounted securely and integrated woth the cranium, the distributor of this engine acts rightfully so as a third eye, while the blower belt and pullys can easily explain why you have sinus problems.
Looking at the mechanical computer, we can give thnks for both the advances in elctronics and semiconductors, as well as the unimaginable leap to our own brains.
The piece also speaks to the huge love many humans have for motors, or cars in general. To this end the piece pays Homage to Ed "Big Daddy" Roth. Big Daddy is the first of my two artistic illegitamite fathers. His custom cars were beyond the dreams of all car bulders and spoke to the dreamer in me. It was not surprising that I later found Big Daddy was called the Salvador Dali of car desigers.
Analog Brain 2
While analog Brain 1 put out 8000hp it can only do so for very short bursts (5-6 seconds) Analog Brain 2 is powered by what some feel is the most elegant and powerful machinery ever designed, a V12 Ferrari 250GT Berlinetta, which can sustain top speed for hours and hours, making the most complex computation tasks simple. Dali scholar and friend Elliot King reminded me of a Picasso anecdote of when Picasso met Dali which goes something like, "Dali's brain is like a motor that is always running!!". Were Dali's brain a motor, it is likely it would be something like this V12 powerhouse which outclassed many engines much larger and powerful, allowing him to be at his creative highest at all times.
The competition engine features larger weber carburetors than the "street" version, plus a cold air pan and other modifications.
Twin Marelli distributors supply the spark through 12 plug wires. This amazing collectible is an accurate replica in every way - just smaller. But here's the best part: push the red starter button on the display base, and your 250 GT engine leaps to life, throbbing at idle with the unmistakable sound of the legendary Ferrari V-12! Shift the transmission through the chromed shift gate, and you’ll actually hear it wind through the gears, screaming as it approaches the 7500 RPM red line.
