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.

Fractals, Science and Links
Fractals and Science
What are fractals?
Fractal is a term which was coined by Benoît Mandelbrot. It refers to a certain group of shapes and objects. Fractals are natural or artificial structures wich offer a high level of scale invariance or self-similarity. Scale invariance relating to fractals means that the scale is not important for the result. Structures which are scale invariant can be observed from different distances but the object always looks the same. Self similarity means that parts of the object are self similar (they contain parts of themself). Self similar structures contain parts which are similar to themselves. It is even possible that the whole structure can be found within the object (i.e. Mandelbrot Set). Because of these two attributes very complex structures can be reduced to simple rules when they are recognized as fractals.
Examples for natural fractales are: Examples for artificial fractals are:
Fern Sierpinski triangle
Romanesco broccoli Koch snowflake
After understanding the beauty of fractals you will always try to find fractal structures in your environment. And you will find them. Fractals are more than just a mathematical theory to describe certain things. Fractals are the answer to so many different questions.
Before he died, I tried to contact Benoit Mandelbrot to see if he had any contact with Dali. I had become convinced that not only would Dali utilize fractals heavily in his work were he alive, but he may have done so already. At a later time I'll write an article on why I feel this.
As said above, fractals are everywhere. Every breath you take sends air into the fractal network of your lungs, every pump of your heart (which in itself is fractal) sends life through the fractal network of your viens. There are mystical as well as practical qualities in fractals, and I will continue to explore these concepts.
While there are many kinds of fractals and many programs to generate fractals, I thought I'd provide links to several of what I consider the best. Most are free, so download them and get immersed in the visual qualities of fractal making. I don't believe that the world at large is ready to call a fractal art, but do believe, that utilizing fractals in the right compositions, can be immortal.
