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.

In 2003 there was a Surrealist Ball held in Williamsburg, NY. The show was supposed to have Giger, Ernst Fuchs and much more there. I decided I'll show them who is a surrealist and built a costume to mimic Dali's Man becoming a Schooner, the mast was formed as a backbone which was mounted at my hips...it made an amazing scene. Unfortunately none of the headliners showed up for the ball and it was full of unicorns and fairies who knew nothing about surrealism.
I also made this large molecular structure to wear at the High opening. There were many admirers, but the most rewarding thing of the evening was when, taking the structure to store it, Diane said, "You are a very interesting man"
The High hired me to talk at an event called Friends of Dali. For this event I made a headdress of the molecular structure which was a complete cube. I wore the molecule during my entire talk and posed in front of the Raphalesque Madonna by Dali that inspired the building of such a headdress
Myself, Ultra Violet, and Denise Sanders
Here I am telling a anecdote of my times with Dali to one of the management at the High as Diane looks on
For the opening of Dali and Cinema at MoMA in NY, I made a Tux that had drawers on its arms, and legs. Even the tie had a row of drawers. The tux was a big hit and drew lots of attention.
Wore the tux on the train to NY and took this shot upon arrival
Elliot King, prominent Dali scholar, though the tux was just right Amazing

My Kuksi - acrylic on board 32"x 40" I first saw this painting on a magazine cover at a book store one friday evening. I liked the additional art in the article and emailed Kris to introduce myself. Kris lived in Kansas. After exchanging emails on Saturday, I got an email early Sunday morning asking where I lived. What I did'nt know was that Kris was in Wash., DC repacking a show, finding I was in CT he simply told me he will see me later, Kris pulled his van in the driveway for a pvt show
My Gonzalez Painting. Acrylic on Clayboard 26"x44" Early in Andrews career I followed him and wanted a painting immediately, In 2003 I finally committed to a painting and it shipped to me in 2011. A phenominal job and among his best. I hangs in my living room along side my Dali Tapestry

As I near the completion of the Warhol part of my Marilyn, and approach the Dalinian section, I have Marilyn and I wear urchin exoskeletons, to prepare.
For two months I battled my Las Meninas, as the hand maidens harassed and mocked me...I could not win with the perspective masterpiece with a simple mahl and paintbrush...it got to the point where I considered bringing an actual weapon to face them....what I did not know was that all I needed was an Octopus, who carried and lived in the grays, silvers and umbers of Velazquez. Watch soon for the unveiling soon.
