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.

Deep Dream Paintings Continued
This series of paintings is based on images processed utilizing Googles Deep Dream Generator. When Google announced the utility it crated all sorts of waves in the digital art community. After thousands of cats and dogs generated, artists finally started to get a better handle of the capabilities and what kinds of image textures to use to create some very spectacular art.
In that imagery, I noticed the ability to mimic and step beyond much of the effects I had been creating with 3D volumes and the liquid forms of a evolved Nuclear Mysticism.
I started spending many many hours trying to understand and generate the types of effects I was hoping for.
I have always admired the dutch still-life paintings of flowers and decided to try the effect on one. It became obvious that the depictions of space between atoms, the flow of solids, and the interaction of materials can be used anywhere, and to my eyes and emotions, not only is the beauty upheld but the world just beyond our senses makes the scene even more beautiful, meaningful, and inspiring.
Floral Still Life-Original
These forms exist everywhere, and can be applied to all of art, but here I have chosen to apply the techniques to some of my favorite genres which include the Pre-Raphaelites and Art Nouveau. IN my two examples below I have transformed Rossetti's Proserpine, and Gustave Klimt's Judith to update the masterpieces. The application of the evolved nuclear mystical understanding nature of matter, while maintaining the paintings original beauty make for a magical combination.
Here again I have attempted to find a balance of the apollonian and dionysian as suggested d by Nietzche, to form a true masterpiece. Where the liquid and dream-like forms of the background and textures form the Dionysian and contrast with the amazing original females form the Appolinian. As the foreground and background and the figures are melded together by the string like textures that connect them all, the paintings show how not only is there space between atoms, but that density, temperature and movement all effect the fluidity of everything around us.
Once I understood Nietzsche's concept I understood much of abstract expressionism, and in particular Pollack. I was then able to utilize these seemingly unstructured styles to better convey the ideas and concepts behind much of Dali's Nuclear Mysticism and evolve them into the geometry I use today.
Proserpine's Dream 3/2022
The inherent beauty of the Pre-Raphaelites and the Art Nouveau movement are perfect vehicles to take one step further to explain the science and the mysticism of beauty, ecstasy, and fluidity.
Both the Pre-Raphaelites and the Art Nouveau movement understood beauty and applied it to almost all their work. They created entirely in the realm of the emotion and entirely on the side of the Appolinian.
Adding the texturing offered in my application of the Deep Dream Algorithms completes the masterpieces bu maintaining the original beauty and adding the scientific and beyond the senses geometry of the Dionysian.
